Community Matters in Maine, Poster Symposium, Summer 2011

Bowdoin students are learning that community service and environmental stewardship are dual paths that often cross.

The intersections of these journeys have provided rich learning opportunities for students involved in the Community Matters in Maine Summer Fellowship and Psi Upsilon Environmental Fellowship programs, coordinated by the the Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good and Environmental Studies Program.

Sixteen fellows working with numerous organizations from Portland to Augusta recently showcased their work through posters and brief presentations in Maine Lounge, Moulton Union. See the Psi Upsilon ES webpage for more information about the student projects and fellowship program.
