The Fall 2018 Presentation of Community Engaged Scholars projects will be held during the Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Community Engaged Learning on December 4, 2018. For more information, visit the URS Symposium Information webpage.
"As a public liberal arts university, UNC Asheville recognizes that community engagement is part of the role of a scholar in modern society... Community engagement allows students, faculty, and staff to interact with the world beyond the campus, be it the diverse heritage of the local community or the global community. Innovative partnerships at all levels not only enrich the educational and cultural experiences of students and faculty, but can also help stimulate the economy and identify new approaches to addressing common challenges." - UNC Asheville Strategic Plan
As part of UNC Asheville’s commitment to service learning and community engagement, the university showcases the work of students who have been engaged in service learning projects and other community engagement activities throughout the previous months as part of the end-of-semester Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Community Engaged Learning. The public is encouraged to attend and learn more about the impact our students are having in their communities, as well as the work being done by their community partner organizations.
