Civic Engagement


The Colonel Bud Day Center for Civic Engagement was founded in the spring of 2015 as a nonpartisan center for activities relating to citizenship and civic awareness. It is a regionally recognized resource that encourages and supports students' civic and political engagement in the Morningside and Siouxland communities.

The center honors Colonel George E. "Bud" Day, a 1950 graduate of Morningside College. Colonel Day was a Medal of Honor and Air Force Cross recipient who served in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.
