Bowdoin and the Common Good: A Celebration of Community
– 5:00 PM
David Saul Smith Union, Morrell Lounge
This celebratory symposium provides an opportunity for students involved in communities through service and research to share their projects and stories about what they have learned as a result of working 'for the benefit of society' in partnership with organizations throughout Maine and around the globe.
The symposium stands as a beautiful example of the value of a liberal arts education, featuring projects that are diverse and often multidisciplinary in their scope.
Some of the issues represented at the symposium this year include equal access to education, sustainable communities, poverty and social justice, and international connections in Maine and beyond.Join us for refreshing beverages, Maine-made treats, and gelato from Gelato Fiasco, and enjoy posters and displays that chronicle a year of the College's public engagement. All are welcome!
