Institutional Resources

The Annual Community Partners’ Meeting, hosted by the Shaw Center, provides faculty, staff, and community members the opportunity to share information, suggest programmatic changes, and plan future collaborations. For example, presentations have been made by professors on topics such as Social Entrepreneurship, Creative Writing, Community Geography, Communications Design, as well as Managing Risk and Liability and Transportation. The Center highlights new programs and potential points community – campus connections at these meetings. An estimated 80 partners attend each year, providing opportunities for networking and discussion surrounding upcoming service learning courses.

The annual meeting also gives us the opportunity to recognize our community partners who have hosted our students throughout the academic year. The list below represents our community partners during the past two years, many of whom are connected to both the Shaw Center Literacy Initiatives and Community-Based Service Learning Programs.

To our partners, thank you for the support, guidance, and expertise you continually share with our students, faculty, and staff.
