This event will recognize the work of faculty and students fostering community-based partnerships through classroom projects during the extraordinary 2020–21 academic year. During the event, faculty and students from around the country will share the nuances that exist in building relationships with community partners and how faculty are working to create engaged learning experiences for students through such relationships. Educators and students will share the process and results of classroom projects through activities that bring them together around a common theme.
