COMM 1041 Interpersonal Communication


Thanks for a great semester of community engaged scholarship! A few reminders as we head into the last days of classes and finals. You can of course continue to submit hours for your classes until the last day of finals (or, when faculty tell you hours are due) however…
Tomorrow is the last day to submit hours for service awards for this year! If you are graduating, this is especially important so you can get your cords and awards-which will be mailed to you. Anyone who serves 100 or more hours in a year is eligible for an award. Please make sure you log all of your hours today or tomorrow that you want considered for the award. Information on awards can be found here https://serve.gwu.edu/awards-and-recognition.
Please remember when you log hours to add your impact to your community partner and just click the box for your class at the end-not the other way around. You can find step by step instructions on how to add hours here: https://gwstudent.webex.com/gwstudent/ldr.php?RCID=d0f2f0880acf0ae7d439e28b7e3ecf4f
And if you’ve submitted hours incorrectly how to edit hours here:
https://gwstudent.webex.com/gwstudent/ldr.php?RCID=f0d87fb84e4c0759dfe61a0e099131bd

Please remember to make your impacts public and not private so your community partner can approve them. The video also shows that process.
Two additional reminders:
We invite all students to share their experience in each of their community engaged scholarship courses with us. We and our faculty and our community partners and future students benefit from this feedback so please take the time to share it with us. The link to the survey is here: http://gwserves.givepulse.com/survey/take/WUEpN3bi1TrQckn944uL
If your faculty member has told you that your course is participating in the virtual symposium on community engaged scholarship, or if you would just like to present, please check out this blog for how to prepare for the virtual symposium https://blogs.gwu.edu/nashmanfacultyupdate/2020/04/10/join-us-for-the-spring-2020-virtual-symposium-on-community-engaged-scholarship/and don’t forget to upload your presentation!
If you have trouble uploading please email rachellt@gwmail.gwu.edu and I can help you with that process.
Also many students have asked how they can still get more hours by serving virtually because they need them for their course, or because they want to help –there are hundreds of options for virtual service on givepulse check out how to find them in 3 clicks here: https://blogs.gwu.edu/nashmanfacultyupdate/2020/04/01/opportunities-for-virtual-service-across-the-country/
If you are doing/have done service that is not part of a organization-you’ve sewn masks, or you’ve called elderly people in your neighborhood to check up on them-please submit that service here https://givepul.se/08xhfg and then click “add impact” and be sure to click the box for your class if you want/need it to count towards hour requirements-you’ll need to write a few sentences of reflection and/or attach a photo for approval.
Just a reminder, the DCCK sign-up closed 1/25. I emailed DCCK's volunteer coordinator to cancel the remaining open shifts. So if you signed-up after 1/25, your shift was cancelled.

If you still need to sign-up for DCCK shifts, please visit this link to schedule your shifts with DCCK directly.

As a previous volunteer with DCCK, I highly recommend arriving early, especially when you first begin volunteering.

In last year’s survey of Community Engaged Scholarship, 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 https://www.dcmetroapp.com/ and get to your site with ease (and less stress on your wallet) https://www.wmata.com/schedules/trip-planner/

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello everyone,

Here is the link for the DCCK sign-up sheet.

Be sure to sign-up for volunteer shifts by January 25th (this Saturday). After January 25th, you will no longer be able to sign-up for DCCK shifts using this document. I will email the volunteer coordinator at DCCK so other volunteers will be able to sign up for shifts.

Be sure to look at and use this sign-up sheet first. If you do not sign-up for volunteer shifts using this document by 1/25, here is the link for DCCK’s volunteer sign-up.
