BSW students Meghan Graham and Marisa Swanson have been selected as LCCE-City Hall Fellows for the 2014 spring semester. Graham was a 2013 recipient of the Kuhn Intellectual Entrepreneurship Award. Swanson is a Forty Acres Scholar, Class of 2016.
The LCCE-City Hall Fellows program is a partnership between the City of Austin and the Longhorn Center for Civic Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin. The program is designed to develop civic leaders among UT students across all disciplines. Students selected for the program have the opportunity to work with communities across the city to explore and develop initiatives for revitalization. Advised by community and city leaders, LCCE-City Hall Fellows develop skills in community- and team-building, as well as gain valuable exposure to issues around city planning, diverse neighborhoods, and public engagement.
