Together, these departments share a mission of maintaining an environment at the Capstone that supports the growth and development of students through active participation in experiential learning opportunities. Each year they host the Exemplo Capstone Awards (formerly Service and Leadership Awards) to honor individual students, student organizations and even full-time staff members who “serve compassionately, engage masterfully and live boldly.” This year’s event was held on April 11 at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center and celebrated the achievements and contributions of many in our campus community.
