THURSDAY, OCT. 20—Celebration of Community Engagement

The Celebration of Community Engagement recognizes the many community engagement programs spearheaded and supported by our university. The poster exhibit and reception will begin at 6:00 pm in the Buller Hallway. The keynote address and departmental project videos and highlights will begin at 6:30 pm in Newbold Auditorium.

There are two ways that faculty and departments can share their community engagement programs. Faculty and departments may do either or both (preferred) of the following: Create a poster of your project. Posters should be 30 x 40 inches, and may be printed in the James White Library. Create a short video (4 to 5 minutes in length) that describes the scope of the project/intervention. The most compelling videos will be shared during the event in Newbold Auditorium.

You may choose to share a video, a poster or both. Project descriptions must include: (a) the need being addressed, (b) the goals of the program, (c) the target audience or demographic served, (d) timelines, (e) project outcomes, and (f) any partners, sponsors or collaborators that need to be recognized.

If you have questions about creating videos or posters, please contact us at Assistance with poster templates and video production are available upon request.
