Showcase Sessions please answer for each room:

In room 301 which showcase laptop session did you find most compelling from the medical school and why?

In room 302- What did you learn about community engaged research by looking at these ongoing projects? Which method did

you find most effective for community engaged research?

In room 308- In the Human Service and Social Justice showcase which presentation best addressed a Social Justice issue that you were unaware of? Were you compelled to act/learn more about the issue because of what you saw if so what will you do?
Today is the LAST DAY to register for the symposium!! All students must register to attend, whether you are presenting for extra credit or not, in order to both get class credit and be included in the lunch count. Please use this link:

And, you can use it to say thank you to your community partner and invite them to the symposium! Has your community partner gone above and beyond for you? Are you sharing work at the symposium from your service or research site? Invite them to lunch and the symposium-we'll have some great swag for all of the partners who attend. Share the RSVP with them today (It’s the same link as the one above)
Hi everyone!

As we were discussing today, our class is required to attend the annual Symposium on Community-Engaged Scholarship on December 9th from 12:30-3:30pm. Registration for the Symposium is now open and the deadline to do so is DECEMBER 1ST! You can use this link to register: (If you don't register, you won't get the free lunch that's included!)

For this class, presenting during the 'showcase presentations' section is an extra credit option. During this time, you would have a short presentation set up on a laptop and people will be walking through the room (where many others would be presenting as well) so that you could give them a short 'elevator pitch' about your service experience. To get a better idea of what this looks like/requires of you, check this out:

Please start registering now, especially if you are intending to present. If you are unsure about the exact process though, I can answer any questions before or after class next week and troubleshoot things with you.

(P.S - Don't forget to keep logging your hours!)
Hi all,
just wanted to share a few more reminders:

In last year’s survey of Community Engaged Scholarship students, many students said “I wished I had known about Metrorail and Bus to my site, I would have saved lots of money on transportation”. Try out the trip planner and Metro App get to your site with ease (and less stress on your wallet)

Also, check out these great opportunities for students to take their community engaged scholarship to the next level. Click the link to learn more about funding opportunities for working with community partners in DC.
Hi everyone! Just wanted to post a few reminders for y'all:

First, make sure to fill out the service waiver before you start serving:

Also, be sure to check out the Community Service Fair at the Marvin Center on September 13th (this Friday!). If you are still looking for a service site for class, this is a perfect opportunity to find one. Here is some more information:

Lastly, if you have any questions or need a refresher on what I went over in class, take a look at the CES service guide, which can be found under the 'documents' tab.
Before you start serving be sure to fill out the service waiver online here:
