Plan to attend with anyone at your organization that helps plan for and supervise UW students!

Ruby, Elaine, and Angel. Leadership is Collaboration

 Come to:
  • Network with a large group of others from the over 300 organizations who host UW students
  • Reaffirm your role in supporting UW students to learn and grow in their work within communities
  • Learn more about our work and the possibilities for campus-community connections!

The Carlson Center and our UW faculty partners are hosting this event to bring together community host organizations who are engaged in service learning and community-based internships.

We are hosting this convening in response to the focus group feedback we received from a group of our community partners last summer (see the full report from the focus group). That group asked for space for community leaders to connect with each other, and to share lessons, questions and resources about making the most of their work with UW students.

We will also use some of this time to answer their request for better communication about the student academic and personal growth outcomes intended from students’ community-based experiences.

See you there!
