Call for Submissions for 2020 Pitt Engagement Conference and Awards

The Community Engaged Scholarship Forum (CESF20) featuring the Partnerships of Distinction Awards will be held on March 3, 2020, in the William Pitt Union.

The theme for the event is “Progress Through Partnerships: Building Momentum Together.”
