Biographical Sketch/Agency History

History: Wartburg Community Engagement is organized by the Center for Community Engagement (CCE) at Wartburg, located in the Student Life Suite. CCE has community partnerships with Waverly Health Center, Civic Scholars, and Community Builders. The Cedar River Storytellers Festival is designed to teach the art of storytelling while appealing to a multitude of people including librarians, teachers, students, and community members. The festival was founded by grants given by the Iowa Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Wartburg English Department in cooperation with the Northeastern Iowa Regional Library. The Cedar River Science Symposium is a one day event for high school juniors and seniors led by Wartburg faculty or scientists from the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science-Iowa.
