Hello Community Engaged Scholars,
Thank you for your learning, research and service to our GW and DC communities this semester.

Surveys and Cookies
We have a survey that we’d like you to complete it is anonymous but we will be able to see how many students in each course complete the survey. All courses with a 75% or better survey completion by Midnight Dec. 11th will be eligible to pick up a free cookie from the Nashman Center on Friday the 13th (winners announced the morning of Dec. 12th). The survey will ask you to click the box for your course (so there is the potential to get many cookies if you are in more than one designated class). The survey link is here http://gwserves.givepulse.com/survey/take/9wVfFGMNPWp2DJCVWYHw

What one question or comment did you want to share with Alex Justice today from DCCK that we did not get to address in our session?

Which concurrent session did you attend? How did the students from the Community Engaged Scholarship Couse take up the idea of service and scholarship? What did you learn from them?

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?
If you have taken any photos while at your service site, please be sure to send them to me.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
In the "Documents" section, I added a PDF named "Nashman Student Opportunities." If you are interested to continue work in the community, be sure to check out this Power Point for grant and project opportunities.

If you have any questions about the Power Point, submitting impacts, the Symposium, etc., don't hesitate to ask.
As the end of the semester approaches, here are a few important reminders about submitting impacts:

-Be sure to log your service hours on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
Do NOT wait until the last minute to log your service hours.

-When you add an impact on Give Pulse, be sure that you click “Public” and not “Private.” If your setting is set to private, others will not be able to see your impacts. In other words, I will not be able to see if the impact was added correctly (which could impact it's verification) and Professor Presser would not be able to see it.

-If you have impacts that are "Private," be sure to change them as soon as possible.

-Be sure to share the impact with UW 1020 M54.
Just a reminder, be sure to log your hours on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
Do NOT log all of your service hours at the last minute.

If you did not complete the service waiver, I emailed you individually this morning as a reminder to complete it. **This survey will probably take you less than 3 minutes to complete.** If you have not yet done so, be sure to complete this online service waiver. Completion of this survey (online service waiver) is a requirement for all CES courses.
