The sixth annual Community Engagement Showcase will be held April 16, 5-7 p.m. in Klarman Hall’s auditorium and Groos Family Atrium. Attendees will learn about outstanding local, regional and international projects and find out how they can get involved in community engagement at Cornell. The showcase will include an awards ceremony, student panel discussion and poster presentations. The event is free and open to the public.

More than 40 undergraduate and graduate students will present posters and discuss their collaborations with partners from New York to Nepal, Baton Rouge to Brazil. Students will reflect on their engaged-learning experiences at Cornell through a panel discussion, and an awards ceremony will honor faculty and student projects.

Two student winners and their community partners will receive $1,500 to further their community-engaged initiatives. Award recipients are selected based on their impact on the communities they serve, project sustainability and knowledge dissemination in the Cornell community and beyond. A Cornell faculty member whose collaborative efforts in the community have resulted in exemplary and sustained community-engaged projects will receive the George D. Levy Engaged Faculty Award.

The event is sponsored by the Community Learning and Service Partnership, Education MinorOffice of Academic Diversity Initiatives, Office of Engagement Initiatives and Public Service Center.

Ashlee McGandy is the content strategist for the Office of Engagement Initiatives.
