Mount St. Mary’s University Students to Present At National Summit on Civic Engagement

Mount St. Mary's University

January 21, 2017


Five students from Mount St. Mary’s University will present their work on a national stage at the National Campus Leaders Summit later this month. Sponsored by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C., the summit brings together student leaders from across the country to learn civic engagement.

The students - (pictured L to R) Lyndsey Saunders, C’20, Charles Lewis Jr., C’20, Brianna Brown, C’20, Jessica Hugee, C’19, and Le-Roy Battle, C’19 – were invited to participate in the conference. They are leaders of the Mount’s Peer Education Advisory Council of Excellence (P.E.A.C.E.) P.E.A.C.E. members work with the Center for Student Diversity to create events and promote discussions to foster a welcoming and inclusive campus environment.

The summit will allow the students to examine their work on civic engagement against the backdrop of the Holocaust – a setting that brings into context the importance of their efforts and serves as a reminder that hate, if left unchecked, can have disastrous consequences.
