Some of the most successful programs that use a PCI Foundation grant include an element of Community Engagement - either by bringing a student project into the community or bringing the community into the school for further educational opportunities.
To be eligible for this award, the professor or professors must have worked with one or more community or constituent group during the previous school year on or off campus to provide community engagement opportunities for students. The university and community will have collaborated to exchange known for this award, the successful professors should have displayed significant effort, made a meaningful contribution, and have supported students and the community.
Nominations are due by September 30, 2020 and the award will be presented at the 2021 PCI Convention.
The 2020 recipients of the award were Karen Kensek and Doug Noble from University of Southern California for their work with Joshua Tree National Forest.
