Bennion Center: 30 Years of Community Building
Level 1 Gallery
August 18, 2017- November 9, 2017
Thirty years ago, the Lowell Bennion Community Service Center was founded. The goal was connecting campus to community through service. A handful of students began the work that would grow to transform thousands of lives. Since that time more than 100-thousand students have donated more than 3-million hours of community service serving the elderly, feeding the hungry, helping to shelter the homeless and tutoring struggling grade-schoolers. Lowell Bennion, former Associate Dean of Students at the U, set an example that has rippled out across the decades. This exhibit honors him and his legacy – the students present and past who are leading community service agencies and continue to serve the public now and in the future.
