Lunch and Conversation: Student civic engagement across the disciplines
(Community Service)

Given the intensity of the current social and political climate, students across nearly every major on campus have expressed an eagerness to be involved in meaningful action and to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective in that work. In response to this interest, CELTS will host a series of discussions and workshops this year to explore how academic courses across the disciplines can be launching points for building civic engagement skills among students. These events are open to anyone who has an interest in thinking further about how academic coursework can prepare students to apply their academic learning to socially or politically meaningful action. As we face issues ranging from scientific literacy to funding for the arts to the history of race in the United States and so much more, we hope you can envision a place for yourself or someone from your department in our conversations.

Please join us on Friday, September 8, from noon to 1 p.m. in Stephenson 208 (the CELTS Arts and Crafts Room) for an opportunity to talk and hear about strategies and tools you or others have used to prepare students for community-engaged work.

Lunch will be provided, so RSVP to Sheila Lyons at by Wednesday, September 6.
