2018 News Propel Ohio
September 06, 2018 : Regional campus students encouraged to apply for Propel Ohio

 

Students of all disciplines are encouraged to apply to attend the fourth annual Propel Ohio: Collegiate Leadership Summit at Cleveland State University which will be held on Oct. 12, 2018. Propel Ohio is a leadership program that promotes civic engagement and inspires undergraduate students to grow into civic leaders in Ohio.

 

This year’s conference will feature U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, guest speakers, and workshop facilitators who will discuss how college students can tackle childhood poverty as well as food security, inequities in education, and homelessness in their Ohio communities. Matthew Desmond, Pulitzer prize-winning author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, will be the keynote speaker.

 

Participating students can also expect to receive resources on volunteer, internship, and career opportunities related to public service.

 

Each of Ohio’s two-year and four-year public and private colleges and universities are invited to appoint undergraduate students to attend the program. The deadline to apply is Sept. 14, 2018, although Brown has encouraged students to apply as soon as possible.
