Civic Learning Statewide Conferences

Westfield State nursing students participated in an international public health mission to Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala in March 2014.

Each year since the 2014-2015 academic year, the Department of Higher Education has held a statewide conference on civic learning for faculty and administrators of public colleges and universities, drawing between 100 and 150 people each year.
