Illinois State University offers a wide variety of resources to help you get involved with civic engagement both on campus and throughout the community!
Each year, Preview participants are asked to bring school supplies when they visit campus and those supplies are then stuffed into backpacks for local students during our Welcome Week Service Project. With coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, we aren't able to collect supplies or gather for the service project this year. We CAN, however, still support this important initiative and help local children by purchasing items on the Amazon wish list for our local partner, the Back to School Alliance. Thanks for considering a purchase!
