Call For Proposals

Proposal submission deadline: Monday, February 3, 2020

The Center for Community Service Initiatives (CCSI) and the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Implementation Committee invite students, faculty, staff, and community partners to submit proposals for presentations at Barry University’s seventh annual Community Engagement Symposium.

“Engagement in Purposeful Projects: From Awareness to Action.” In the context of community engagement, purposeful projects include experiential learning practices such as service-learning, community-based research, fieldwork, study abroad, capstones, and internships.

Proposals should address the theme of the symposium and identify the experiential learning practice that was implemented. Successful proposals will specify the course or co-curricular project, the social or community issue addressed, the related activities undertaken, and the actual learning outcomes. Proposals should also emphasize how the project was designed to be purposeful and how student awareness was translated into action.

Scheduled for March 25, the 2020 symposium will highlight student learning outcomes of community engagement and collaboration in the context of Barry’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), “Fostering Personal and Social Responsibility through Experiential Learning.”
