University of Findlay officials have announced details for a new Center for Civic Engagement. The center, which will operate out of the university’s Center for Student Life and College of Business building, is slated to open sometime in the next year. In the planning process for three years, the Center for Civic Engagement will operate as a bridge between various community agencies to identify and deal with issues affecting Hancock County, including poverty, mental health, hunger and substance abuse. Kathy Kreuchauf, president of the Findlay-Hancock Community Foundation is excited about the potential of the new center, reportedly saying: “Without it, no matter how well-motivated or well-intended participants are, very little system-level change can actually be accomplished.”
