Humanics in Action Day
Humanics in Action Day 2012Humanics in Action Day will take place Tuesday, September 25, 2012.
Humanics in Action Day was co-initiated and developed by the student leaders of New Student Orientation and 1998-1999 Distinguished Springfield Professor of Humanics Peter Polito. Together they developed this event to unite the people of Springfield College and its surrounding neighborhoods to work on community service projects. Humanics in Action Day first occurred on Sept. 10, 1998, and has become an annual event in celebration of community and civic engagement.
Each year, about 2,000 students, faculty, staff, and alumni fan out across the city of Springfield during a day to read to youngsters, clean up vacant lots, repair sidewalks, and generally make connections with the community.
