Annual Report 2017-2018

Overview

For three decades the Bennion Center has championed civic engagement at the University of Utah. Through service, scholarship, and learning, thousands of students, faculty and staff and community partners have joined together to make our community and our world better. The 30th anniversary marked a year-long celebration of our founders and our future. We are honored to share this report of our stewardship.

 

When an individual becomes too focused on themselves and their success, the world outside them becomes lost. The values I observed this week allowed for success and improvement without taking away from others. It is trial and error, collaboration, reconstruction and support that drives this community. – Student
