Nearly 40 people will be honored with SUNY Cortland Leadership in Civic Engagement Awards on Thursday, April 24.

The ceremony, which is free and open to the public, takes place at 4:30 p.m. in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge.

The group of honorees includes 26 students from the College, eight faculty and staff members and three community residents as well as a local organization and two SUNY Cortland classes. Those recipients, along with 10 scholarship winners, will be recognized for their support of community agencies, social change and civic engagement.

The participants of the 2013 Judson H. Taylor Leadership House Program and winners of the Peter F. Eisenhardt First-Year Learning Community Scholarships also will be recognized.

The students to be honored are involved with a wide range of projects, from tutoring and mentoring programs to health and wellness services to environmental work. The majority of their work supports Cortland County residents, the area’s school systems and several human service organizations.

SUNY Cortland’s Leadership in Civic Engagement Awards are supported by the College’s Institute for Civic Engagement, the Cortland College Foundation, the Cortland Fund, and the divisions of academic affairs, institutional advancement and student affairs.
