In partnership with non-profit organizations, Bowdoin students, working through the Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good, provide nearly 43,000 hours of service each year in the local community. Such involvement not only enhances their learning, but connects them to the issues important to the community.
A symposium to highlight that involvement will be held Thursday, May 13, 2010, from 3 to 4:30 p.m., in the Morrell Room of Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick. The public is welcome; refreshments will be provided.
The symposium provides a public forum for students to share posters, results and stories from projects they have completed in local schools, social service agencies, cultural and environmental organizations.
Campus-community collaborations to be represented at the symposium include:
