At the end of each semester, the Nashman Center hosts the Symposium on Community-Engaged Scholarship. This event invites students, faculty, and community partners to share their experiences, disseminate findings, and learn about other campus/community initiatives.
All faculty and students are encouraged to attend, and invite their community partners as well. Many faculty incorporate Symposium participation into their course design, particularly those who assign “Showcase Presentations” as graded work. Other faculty invite students to attend the Symposium as an alternative assignment to a short reflection paper. Please contact Wendy Wagner, [email protected] for more information about including your course in this event.
Join faculty, students, and community partners in a thoughtful conversation about our roles as active citizens in a participatory democracy.

Symposium participants are encouraged to explore as many rooms as possible. Students will presentation on their community engaged scholarship from a variety of disciplines, including: communications, human services and social justice, university writing, Spanish, community health, and media and public affairs, and more.
