The topic for October is Civic Engagement.

All submissions must be emailed to diversity.utlac@gmail.com by October 23rd at 11:59 P.M.

Essay Requirements:
– Between 400 – 750 words
– All sources must be cited (if applicable), with an appropriate bibliography attached
– Double-spaced pages with readable font/font size (Times New Roman, Arial, Century, etc.)
