Our Best of Student Success
When you think about the best of USF and the best of student leadership and service, it’s impossible NOT to think about the McCarthy Center. Join us at BOSS – the Best of Student Success – on Friday, October 18 from noon to 2:30 at the McLaren Center.
BOSS is part of Celebrate USF, a weekend of special events marking the public launch of the University of San Francisco’s Change the World from Here Comprehensive Campaign. You can hear two of our students in the Public Service and Community Engagement minor talk about their public service passions –
(L-R) James Dumlao and Emily Cagape
Also learn about three signature McCarthy programs:
- Changemakers brought over 100 USF students together over three years to conduct archival research, record oral histories, and publish biographies of 95 San Francisco African American leaders depicted on the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center in the Western Addition.
- USFVotes’ goal is to make every student a voter. Since inception in July 2017, it has registered over 5000 new voters in the USF community and spurred a 160% increase in turnout in the 2018 midterm elections.
- Engage San Francisco Literacy tutors provide nearly 1000 K-5 children with support in and after school to achieve reading at grade level. Our tutors are prepared with culturally relevant pedagogy, community history and trauma-based curriculum.
- The MA Urban and Public Affairs 2020 cohort will be showcasing research on the gig economy which was presented this year to the Local Agency Formation Commission (LaFCo). The study highlighted the wider issues around drivers in Transportation Network Companies particularly in the Bay Area.
Come celebrate with the McCarthy Center and our student leaders!
