COVID-19 Update

  • In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lafayette College has moved to a remote learning environment for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. During this period of closure and other state-mandated restrictions to community life, the Landis Center for Community Engagement will continue our mission of promoting active citizenship by providing opportunities for civic engagement, experiential learning, and social advocacy. Doing so requires us to re-envision the nature of our partnerships and how we might best support our communities as we acclimate to a new social reality. Although the Landis Center is not currently able to organize volunteer events or activities, individual community members are still able to support area organizations through volunteering and other resources.
  • The Lafayette Men’s Soccer team is coordinating a SleevesUp campaign through the American Red Cross. Members of the Lafayette community can participate in the campaign from wherever they are in the country by scheduling an appointment in their area using the link below. The team has set a goal of 50 donors in the next 60 days. Donors should use the special access code assigned to the campaign. https://sleevesup.redcrossblood.org/campaign/lafayette-college-mens-soccer-blood-drive/
