BINGHAMTON, NY – Binghamton University’s Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) is holding its seventh annual Community Opportunities Fair from noon-4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, in the Nelson Mandela Room, located in the University Union, on campus. This event is free and open to the public.

The fair provides a venue for civically engaged faculty, staff, student groups and community organizations to display their work, recruit students and other partners, and make connections. Student attendees have the opportunity to speak with program representatives from on and off campus about how to get involved in the community.

Eighty-five area organizations, service-oriented student groups, and University departments and offices are expected to attend. The CCE works with communities within and beyond the University’s campus to provide meaningful opportunities to students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. The CCE supports the fostering of academic, personal and professional growth through civic engagement to develop active citizens.
