The fair, sponsored by the Gephardt Institute for Public Service, featured more than 40 nonprofit organizations offering a variety of community service and internship opportunities. Many students, faculty and staff members attended the fair and learned about organizations such as the International Institute, which helps immigrants adjust to life in St. Louis as well as hosts the popular “Festival of Nations” each year in Tower Grove Park.
