The Drury Impact Project is the partnership between the office of Community Outreach and Leadership Development at Drury and a nonprofit organization to help support the social issue they focus on. Beginning in Spring 2018, Community Outreach and Leadership Development will be partnering with one student organization or student group (themed housing, athletic team, a class, etc.) that has a high priority in serving the community. This will allow the student group and the entire Drury community to better support the social issue that they dedicate their philanthropy and service effort towards. The partnership selected will allow the Drury Impact Project to focus on a nonprofit organization that the student group selects and will help to promote this organization to the Drury community for an entire semester.
Through the partnership with Community Outreach and Leadership Development, we will promote the nonprofit organization’s events through our social media, promote any events the student group host in benefit to the organization, encourage awareness to their cause, and utilize our office to reach the entire Drury community and encourage their support of the cause. The idea is to broaden the reach of the events and projects that the student group is already working on with this nonprofit and encourage more of the Drury community to get involved.
This partnership will last one semester. After an organization or student group is selected for the Impact Project, they must wait two years before applying again to allow other groups the opportunity to have their cause promoted. Applications are due December 4 by 5:00 p.m. For additional questions or concerns call (417) 873-6803 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
