These will be among the 33 projects presented at the Community Engagement Showcase, April 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Klarman Hall’s Rhodes-Rawlings Auditorium and Groos Family Atrium.
Through poster presentations and panel discussions, attendees will learn about outstanding local, regional and international projects and find out how they can get involved in community-engaged learning, leadership and research at Cornell.
Free and open to the public, the event begins with an hourlong networking reception in the atrium, where more than 50 undergraduate and graduate students will present posters and discuss how they’ve collaborated with community partners.
Projects will show the variety of community-engaged activities at Cornell with students representing almost every undergraduate college and several graduate programs. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite poster, with the winner receiving a $500 award.
At 6:30, the event will move to the auditorium, where a panel of students will reflect on their engaged-learning experiences.
