Students at the University of Nevada, Reno will share the impact from their service-learning and community research experiences this academic year and how their work, in connection with local non-profits, impacted both their own learning and specific community issues at the first University Engagement Showcase. The showcase provides a platform for students and faculty to share their experiences working with community partners and agencies throughout the school year.
The event is a partnership between The Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement, the Joe Crowley Student Union, Associated Students of the University of Nevada and numerous faculty members at the University.
The Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement supports and assists faculty, students and community partners in making academic service-learning a part of coursework. Community partners serve as co-educators and offer students a valuable venue to connect course concepts to community needs.
PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES: An awards ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. where students will be honored for their work in service-learning.
