Director’s Comments:

Dr. Tina L. Kandakai Welcome to Issue 2 of the Fall, 2013 Engaging Leadership Newsletter! The approaching closure of the fall semester is synonymous with completing one half of the academic year. As such, it has prompted a framing of the Director’s Comments on past, present, and future opportunities in mind. First, Issue 1 of the Engaging Leadership Newsletter offered faculty members considerations for selecting ELR (Experiential Learning Requirement) options that fit teaching, learning, and scholarly interests. If you missed the past newsletter and would like to read about these options, archives of the newsletter can be obtained from our website. Over the past 10 weeks, the OEECE has sponsored several engagement events, including the Volunteer Experiential Learning Fair, Urban Plunge immersion trip to Cleveland, and most recently, the Building Experiential Learning and Partnerships workshop. Each of these events has become mainstays of OEECE, providing engagement opportunities for faculty members, students, and our community partners. Second, as we continue to support the advancement of civic engagement, be on the lookout for two upcoming opportunities. First, OEECE is awarding “Engaged Experiential Education Instructional Mini-Grants” to faculty members

seeking funding support for the infusion of experiential learning in a new course or for the enhancement of an existing course-based experiential learning project. Those teaching ELR designated courses, core courses, and those focused on research, scholarly, and creative activities are especially encouraged to apply. Applications for the Spring 2014 Engaged Experiential Education Instructional Mini-Grant will be accepted November 15, 2013 through December 13, 2013. Funding awards will be announced on December 20, 2013. Start your Mini-Grant application today! Secondly, the 4th Annual Oxfam Social Issues Banquet will be held on November 21, 2013. This year’s Banquet is prefaced by “Hunger Awareness Action Week” which offers faculty members and students a chance to become directly involved in educating our community through service activities and events that directly focus on hunger related concerns. For instance, on Wednesday, November 20th, 1:001:45pm in the Kent Center for the Performing Arts, Tracee Patterson, a College of the Arts faculty member, in collaboration with the Career and Community Studies (CCS), will present a skit performed by students enrolled in her “Art of the Theater” course. The course brings together traditional students and adult students with intellectual disabilities (CCS students) in developing a play to show how theater can be used as a platform to bring attention to hunger and poverty. The students in this class are collecting canned food donations for local food pantries. Faculty, students, and staff are encouraged to support Tracee and her students by attending the play and if possible, making a canned food donation. The Oxfam Social Issues Banquet

will include a series of round-table discussions on food insecurity on our campus, sustainability and food, and federal policy challenges, to name a few and the hunger simulation meal. A Meet and Greet is scheduled directly following the Banquet to allow agency representatives to meet with guests who want to “Make a Commitment” to support local efforts through course-based projects or volunteer service. All Oxfam-related events are free and open to the public. Register today! Finally, OEECE will be offering programs and workshops throughout the semester that are designed to support student and faculty engagement interests. Faculty members who want an early start to developing experiential learning courses for Summer and Fall 2014 can join us for the Building Experiential Learning and Partnerships Workshop scheduled for February 13, 2014 from 11:302:00 in 206 Kent Student Center. This match-making event offers an early start to exploring coursebased projects and activities. Faculty members will be paired with representatives from local community agencies who have projects that link directly with course learning objectives. Reserve your seat today! As always, the OEECE is proud of the impact that it is making on the lives of our students, faculty members, and community. If you have ideas that you would like to share or are looking to modify existing experiential learning approaches, feel free to stop by Lake/Olson Center, visit us at www. kent.edu/oeece, email experiential@ kent.edu, or call our office at 330672-7876. Enjoy the rest of your semester, Tina L. Kandakai, PhD Director OEECE

Faculty Mini-Gr ants The Office of Experiential Education and Civic Engagement (OEECE) is pleased to announce the availability of the Engaged Experiential Education Instructional Mini-Grant Awards. The grants range from $300-$500, $700 for the Spring 2014 academic semester. A total of $3,500 will be awarded to faculty members who infuse experiential learning and civic engagement into course curricula. The OEECE seeks to facilitate engaged experiential learning, research, scholarly, and creative

activities that enhances classroom learning while addressing community needs. This mini grant provides faculty members with an opportunity to align their courses with the university’s strategic initiatives of fostering a 21st century learning paradigm. Faculty members will utilize experiential learning and civic engagement to extend the learning environment to community organizations in need of student assistance. The Engaged Experiential Education Instructional Mini-Grant

will award TT/NTT faculty members from any discipline to support the following: 1) a new course-based experiential learning project or the enhancement of an existing one, 2) a new community-based research project or the evaluation of an existing initiative, 3) faculty teaching designated Experiential Learning Requirement (ELR) courses, core courses, and those focused on research, scholarly, and creative activities are especially encouraged to apply.

OMIC Gr ant-Funded Internships Student Success Story OEECE is one of two Kent State offices awarded the Ohio Means and Internships (OMIC) Grant, which supports experiential learning opportunities that strengthen the Northeastern Ohio economy. Students can intern with businesses in select industries, gaining invaluable professional experience as well as a paycheck and more. Students earn a stipend of up to $2,200 upon acceptance by companies that have joined the internship program via OEECE. Importantly, students from a variety of majors can take advantage of these internship opportunities. For example, Interchez®, a freightforwarding company located in Stow has previously requested students with any of the following backgrounds/majors- Marketing, Foreign Language, Information Systems, Visual Communication Design, and Accounting. Hear what Interchez® has to say about, Amanda Calvin, student

intern and Kent State Visual Communications Design student. “Over the past two months, Amanda has truly become a fully engaged member of the company. We often forget she is still a student (a junior, no less!)... She has produced an incredible amount of marketing materials for us, and has become an essential voice and opinion leader on our staff. As a direct result of having Amanda on staff InterChez® has been able to significantly increase our brand presence and our overall brand standards,” writes Carlos Fuentes, Interchez® Executive Vice President. It is clear that he and his colleagues have been thoroughly impressed with Amanda’s work. And on a more

personal level Amanda shares “a skill set we have been lacking for years and from a personality perspective, everyone really enjoys talking and socializing with her.” Amanda shares this satisfaction in her learning experience with Interchez®. She has gained invaluable experience within graphic design, “[but] probably the best aspect of this internship is the people. We all work very well together which is key to any successful job. Everyone enjoys being here which creates a great environment to work in.”

A Banquet Like None Other The Oxfam Social Issues Banquet For six years, Kent State has hosted a banquet unlike any other. Meals are served as well as an opportunity to learn and act in the fight against poverty and hunger. Building upon Oxfam International’s tiered banquet, OEECE has invited local experts to lead engaging small group discussions on a variety of topics, ranging from the geography of poverty to sustainable living and design. And for the first time, some of our very own Kent State students’ firsthand experiences of hunger and poverty will serve as one source of reflection. "It is difficult to focus on

schoolwork when you are physically weak from hunger. Hunger pains, headaches, and being dizzy were all normal symptoms for me," says one student whose story will be shared at the Oxfam Social Issues Banquet which will be held in the Kent Student Center Ballroom on November 21st at 11:30am. In addition to stories and small group discussions, resources such as farmers’ markets, local food pantries and the Campus Kitchen Project will also be illuminated. Going a step further, faculty, staff, students and community members will be able

to interact with local social service agency representatives at a Meet & Greet immediately following the banquet from 2:00pm – 3:00pm. Exchanging of resources-physical, social and intellectual will be the focus of the hour. Contact OEECE at 330-672-7876 or at alucas4@kent.edu for more details.

experiential learning Opportunities “Just 4 a Day” MLK, JR Day of Service On Monday, January 20th, students, faculty, staff, friends and families are invited to participate in the University’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, Just 4 A Day. The event is sponsored by the University’s MLK Day committee, Hillel, Office of Experiential Education and Civic Engagement, and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Volunteers will gather to reflect and to engage in a discussion of the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his call

for justice, peace and equality prior to a community service experience. Volunteers will be encouraged to reflect upon the social justice issues that are connected with the nonprofits they will serve. Service sites for the day will include a variety of locations throughout Portage, Summit and Cuyahoga counties and 6 provide exposure to a wide-range of service areas. The day will end as participants reconvene to reflect about their day – the service provided and its

connection to the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is our hope that this year’s experience will enhance participants’ awareness of social justice issues and how community agencies are addressing those needs in our communities. Contact Ann Gosky at agosky@ kent.edu for more information.

A New Addition: Baseball Field King Kennedy Community Center The rain could not dampen the spirits of 35 Kent State University students and members of the McElrath community on Saturday as they gathered to rededicate the Mitchell/McClelland Ballpark located in the McElrath neighborhood of Ravenna servicing the members of the community and children of the King Kennedy Community Center. During the past month more than 160 volunteers from the community and university have donated more than 450 hours to revitalize the baseball field and park. Independent student volunteers as well as students from Kappa Sigma, Men’s Baseball and Women’s Softball and Chi Omega and Delta Gamma

the Kent State University Facilities Management and Amy Densevich, Athletic Academic Counselor for their involvement. A very special note of gratitude to Ms. Shelley Evans and Ms. Mary Caples who served as liasions between the community and the University for this project. Anyone interested in assisting with the on-going project is encouraged to contact Ann Gosky at agosky@ kent.edu for more information. Sign-ups for spring baseball leagues have begun and interested youth and adults are encouraged to contact Shelley Evans for more information at sevans@kent.edu.

sororities joined community members in the restorative project. Work included removing sod from infield, reroofing and painting dugouts and repairing benches. Team work was the order of the days spent creating McElrath’s field of dreams. A special thanks to Rebekkah Berryhill and Heather White from

“Turkeypalooza” The Campus Kitchen at Kent State University is proud to announce Turkeypalooza!

Our clients include those served by Kent Social Services and the Center of Hope. It’s a big undertaking, and we need your help. During the week of Monday, November 18th- Friday, November 22nd we are celebrating Take Your Turkey to Work Day! We are asking KSU faculty and staff members to

Student Service Leader Spotlight Student Service Leader: B Fitzpatrick Hometown: Delaware, OH Major: Speech and Language Pathology and Audiology Year in school: Junior Years as Student Service Leader: 3

Student Service Leader: Amanda Bevington Hometown: Solon, OH Major: Integrated Mathematics Year in school: Sophomore Years as Student Service Leader: 2

My name is B Fitzpatrick, and I’ve been a Student Service Leader for three years now! Hands down, it’s my favorite thing to do on campus. Volunteering is honestly my passion, and I really believe that I help make a difference in our community whenever I go on a Super Service Saturday trip. Volunteerism is so important to me because I believe that everyone in our world is connected, and because of this connection, no one is better than another. It’s simply amazing how much I learn about myself by the service that I give. If you ever have a Saturday morning open, sign up for a service trip and come see what it’s like to be part of an empowering community! And hey, once you go on one trip, you’ll be hooked. Then maybe you’ll want to be a Student Service Leader too!

My most memorable service experience was my last birthday when I decided to do 19 random acts of kindness for turning 19. It was an incredible experience and something I will remember for the rest of my life. I made a list of 19 random acts that I wanted to complete around my hometown and took my friends with me. Some acts were giving roses to a stranger, writing a love letter, putting change on a vending machine and making brownies for the fire department. It was a unique way of serving and is one that I recommend everyone to do at least once in their lifetime! Being a Student Service Leader has helped me grow as an individual and is by far one of my favorite things to do on campus! I suggest that anyone who is passionate about serving others gets involved by attending a Super Service Saturday and talking to their leader.

Student Success Story in Gr ant-Funded Internship (Continued) When it comes to professional development, Amanda says: “I receive great feedback and critique from anyone I ask.” Amanda also addresses a common challenge for interns: “Sometimes I think interns don’t speak up because they feel like they’re at the end of the ladder and it wouldn’t affect anything... [My] opinion is recognized or even sought after, I’m treated as an equal part of the team.” Her advice to students preparing for internships: “Make it one of your goals to make friendships and connections with the people you work with. Ask questions! Internships are for learning. Never stop yourself from saying ‘I don’t understand,

could you explain?’” And as Amanda stated, do not be afraid to share observations, make suggestions and become a vital part of the work community. In addition to earning a grantfunded stipend, students also earn experiential learning credit (ELR credit) through participation in

the OMIC Immersion Internship Program. To receive ELR credit for Plus-1 or Non-Course Activity, students need to complete an application, 30-45 hours of on-site service and a reflective project with faculty approval. Click here to learn more about these ELR options. For more details on the OMIC Internship Immersion Program, call 330-672-7876 or e-mail alucas4@ kent.edu.

Career & Community Studies Student Experience The Center for Innovation in Transition and Employment oversees the Career and Communication Studies program that plays an instrumental role in enriching the lives of those with disabilities by providing leadership training. They provide assistance to such people by offering various state of art practices which help them evolve and undergo a positive transition to face the challenging world. One such example is our intern Deanna Baldwin, who has become a vital member of the Office of Experiential Education and Civic Engagement (OEECE) for the past two semesters. She has been involved with the challenging task of creating and launching the listserv for CCS and writing a piece for newsletters for OEECE. The office has been contributing to the improvement of her organizational skills and lexicon. Two of staff recently interviewed Deanna and she had exciting perspective on her work with OEECE. 1) Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from, what are your interests, what year are you in school, do you have any siblings, etc.? “I’m a junior. I’m originally from Tallmadge. I also have one older brother, and I love animals.”

I wrote a lot of short stories, and I actually have a number of them. Of course, someday, I’d like to publish these. I’m actually working on a Michael Jackson story right now. Working on the Listserv helps me to be a little more creative and to think about what I want to put in. It helps me indent and learn to use new words.”

together to connect the CCS students with the OEECE. I try to find those links and come up with a good medium for students to engage in activities. - Last year, Tina and I were discussing it, and since then, doing a Listserv for the CCS students has been one of my biggest goals in being here.” 3) What kind of feedback do you get from people on the Listserv? How have Tina and Tom helped you in your endeavors?

5) What do you see yourself doing with regards to career? Are you going to expand on what you’re doing with the Listserv? “At least for right now, I’ll probably stay here at the office and stick with working on the Listserv; possibly learn new techniques on how to improve myself as a writer. I’ve also been thinking about potentially working with the Record Courier newspaper, maybe with job postings or obituaries.”

“The feedback I get is usually positive. People like the updates. Tina helps me to push myself to be more creative in the newsletters and Listservs. She sometimes gives me writing guides for them. Tom is like an advisor to me as well. He’s definitely helped me with my career direction ensuring that I make the best possible choices.”

2) What is The Bridge about? What prompted you to do the Listserv and what makes it stand out?

4) We understand initially, you wanted to write children’s books. Are you still interested in doing that and how are you preparing for it?

“Essentially, The Bridge is a compilation of links that I put

“Yes, that interest still stands. In the past, particularly in high school,

Two ELR Options PLUS-1 NON-COURSE OPTIONS PLUS-1 CREDIT CREDIT & and Non-Course Activity Plus-1 is a premiere opportunity for students to gain real-world professional experience and academic credit. Through just 30 hours of onsite service over the semester and a reflective project, students can earn an additional credit hour. The Plus-1 Credit can be completed at any class level (freshman-senior). Faculty members must approve student enrollment and projects as explained in the Plus-1 Credit & Non-Course Activity applications.

The deadline for students to submit Spring 2014 applications to OEECE is Thursday, February 6. 2014. Plus-1 Credit activities link seamlessly with the learning objectives of a primary course and/or disciplinary competencies. As a result, you gain a better appreciation and understanding of the course content. Any student who successfully completes the Plus-1 Credit course will have fulfilled their Experiential Learning

Requirement (ELR). If you have a site or project in mind, but are unable to link these with an academic course, you can apply for the Non-course Credit Activity using the same application. Click here to listen to a 3-minute presentation on the Plus-1 Credit process. For more opportunities please contact The OEECE at 330-672-7876.

Cleveland Immersion Trip

Ten Kent State University students participated in this year's Cleveland Urban Plunge exploring issues of poverty and neighborhood gentrification on Cleveland's west side.

Kent State & Portage County Annual Food Drive This year Kent State University and Change Hunger of Portage County teamed up for a two-week food drive to benefit 11 local food pantries and hot meal programs. The event was highlighted by a can sculpture competition that hopes to grow in the coming years, and it culminated

with a team of volunteers that sorted the food at Dix Stadium on Make A Difference Day. As a result of this campus and community effort, nearly 4,000 pounds of food were collected for those in need. Students, faculty, and staff across the university donated both time and resources to help make this event a success. With this in mind, special thanks are due to University Communications and Marketing, Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, as well as to the Office of Student Affairs at NEOMED. The collaboration and support of

all involved undoubtedly made an impact in our community and we look forward to future endeavors together!
