Pass It On! Initiative


Inspired by Gloria McEwen Burgess’s captivating book, Pass it On!, the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement is proud to host a listening event designed to bring people together, share stories, and make our community stronger – one small act at a time.

When you join the Pass It On! Initiative web page, we will pair you with a Pass It On! Partner. Together, you will determine a convenient time and place to meet up and get to know each other a little better using guided conversation prompts. Each participant will log their conversation on the Pass It On! page and commit to a small, purposeful act of kindness to benefit the community. To log your conversation, you simply click the “Add Impact” button in the upper-right corner of the page.

Your Pass It On! deed can be any act of kindness no matter how small. It can be something as simple as running an errand for a busy family member or friend, tipping your server double, complimenting someone, or just thanking a stranger for a job well done. It’s up to you to decide how you want to bring about positivity and change in our community.

For every Pass It On! act you document on the web page, you will be entered to win monthly prizes and experiences. There’s no limit to the number of entries you can make.

So, let’s get out there and Pass It On!
