Event Date
The Henry Ford College Democracy Institute will host a Public Service Engagement Seminar on Thursday, Feb. 18, from 6-9 p.m.

The HFC Democracy Institute will host a Public Service Engagement Seminar on Thursday, Feb. 18, from 6 to 9 p.m. on the first floor of the Andrew A. Mazzara Administrative & Conference Center (ASCC, Bld. L) on the main campus. Registration takes place in the atrium of the ASCC at 5 p.m.

HFC has invited several elected officials and voluntary association members, including representatives from the League of Women Voters, the Dearborn Heights Goodfellows, the Kiwanis Club of Dearborn, among other organizations to participate in this seminar. There will be a panel discussion between the representatives from these organizations. Additionally, these organizations will set up information tables at 5 p.m. and discuss their work with interested students.

The goal of this seminar is to encourage greater participation in public service, whether that means running for office, helping out on political campaigns or participating with a voluntary association in public service. This event allows students and members of the community to engage a cross-section of elected officials. For America’s democratic society to function, it is required that citizens step up and serve.

“We want to encourage young people to be engage and know the importance of public service in our democratic society. We want to provide the attendees with a wide variety of groups or campaigns in which they can become involved,” said Dr. Anthony Perry, a political science professor at HFC.

The Public Service Engagement Seminar is free and open to the public. For questions and/or further information, please contact Perry at 313-845-6383. For information about the HFC Democracy Institute, please visit
