Collaborating with the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement, network members attend, organize, and lead community service projects, alumni and parent book discussions, student mentoring opportunities, and expert panel discussions. In its first five years, WashU Engage members have held 157 events across 21 cities, engaging nearly 2,000 alumni, parents, and friends. We are continually adding new opportunities that respond to community needs and member interests.​
