The WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships and the WKU Student Activities' Leadership & Volunteerism sponsor an awareness event  called Project Affect. Project Affect is a campus and community engagement fair that offers information on how to get involved through service, as well as engages visitors in hands-on activities reflective of different causes. Approximately 500 students participated last year. We look forward to an even greater turnout this year.

Project Affect is coordinated by the ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships and WKU Student Activities' Leadership & Volunteerism.
