Welcome! Good morning and welcome to the Fall 2017 Service-Learning EXPO! Thank you for attending today’s EXPO, which is a display of the collaboration that has occurred this semester between students, faculty, and our community partners. If you have attended an EXPO in the past, you may notice that this year’s structure is a little different- instead of having students individually present about their work, we have invited each course section to get creative with one table to highlight their partnerships throughout the semester in any way they see fit. As you can imagine and will see today, service-learning involves a large community of stakeholders- it truly takes a village. None of this would be possible without the dedication of our community partners, faculty, Service-Learning Advisory Board, Service-Learning Teaching Assistants (S-LTAs), Service-Learning Team Managers (S-LTMs), Service-Learning Street Team, and the support of the staff in the Center of Community Service and City and Community Affairs. The Service-Learning Program is constantly refining local partnerships and attempting to support thoughtful global engagement. The presentations you will see today are indicative of how service-learning facilitates learning and growth in both the community and the classroom. For the 8th year in a row, Service-Learning at Northeastern has been named one of the top service-learning programs in the country by US News and World Report. Our students have served over 10,958+ hours just this semester! Our hope is that today you will see what happens during all those hours- not only the effort that our community partners and students put in, but also the reflective experiences they take away from it, too. Thank you all for joining us today, and on behalf of myself and the rest of the Service-Learning team – Lisa Roe, Michael Henetz, Asta MacKie, Lennox Atkinson– we hope that you enjoy learning about our Service-Learning partnerships. Each one is service-learning in a different form and as evident in the presentations, adds value to both the students and community partners. We hope you enjoy your “day at the beach”!
