At today's (April 24) Civic Engagement Showcase and Symposium, we made a special announcement to honor the tremendous legacy left by Professor Bob Bringle, who is retiring this year and stepping down from his role as founding director of the Center for Service and Learning. From this day forward, this annual event will be known as the Robert Bringle Civic Engagement Showcase and Symposium.

Bob Bringle has been the guiding force behind IUPUI's prominence in advancing service learning in the curriculum, promoting civic engagement as a signature characteristic of the campus, and putting civic-mindedness forth as a distinguishing trait of our graduates. He has worked to make service a more highly valued and rewarded part of the academic careers of fellow faculty.
