Each year, MiCC awards students from member colleges and universities across the state for their outstanding commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. Three types of awards are given: the Outstanding Community Impact Award, the Commitment to Service Award, and the Heart and Soul Award. This year, over 350 students from 27 member campuses will receive awards.

Julie Laforet and Brittany Mack received the Commitment to Service Award.  This award recognizes up to two students per member campus in the state of Michigan for either their breadth or the depth of community involvement or service experiences. Only 31 students will receive this award.

Yvonne Wiggins received the Heart and Soul Award. This award is given to students to recognize their time, effort and personal commitment to their communities through service.

MiCC will honor awarded recipients at an awards brunch on April 14, 2012, at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
