Landis Expo highlights work and awards outstanding leaders Twitter
By Stephen Wilson
Thirty-one poster presentations. Eight awards. One engaged campus. One grateful community.
The 10th annual Landis Center for Community Engagement Expo celebrated the work of faculty-driven, community-based learning and research, student leaders, campus volunteers, and community partners.
Together they filled the room with work they have accomplished over the past year, including food access for the West Ward, local watershed education, Aspiration experiences for area elementary students, MOSAIC programming, and Alternative School Break (ASB) service trips.
Art Kney, director of the Landis Center, welcomed Abu Rizvi, provost, who thanked faculty for making their curriculum experiential and students for honoring community engagement as a key value to life at Lafayette.
CCE staff, including Kney, Amber Zuber, director of leadership and service programs, and Chelsea Cefalu, coordinator of community partnerships, then presented awards and recognitions:
