Nashman Center and the National Churchill Library and Center at the Gelman Library hosted faculty for our first Breakfast Conversation on Community-Engaged Scholarship of the 2018-2019 school year! We were happy to welcome back our diverse, talented group of faculty to GW and make everyone aware of new ways we can support and promote their work this year.
We welcomed back Nashman Affiliated Faculty and announced new affiliated faculty as well. Dr. Wendy Wagner presented on the new course designation process for Community-Engaged Scholarship classes and the Washington, D.C. 101 resource. Email Dr. Wendy Wagner (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rachel Talbert (email@example.com) if you want access to the D.C. 101 resource and learn more about the course designation process here.
Faculty shared ideas and participated in great discussions about their experiences and what they will be doing this year. Community-Engaged Scholars Ashley Hidalgo and Yuval Lev presented a powerpoint on the new GWServes platform and what using it looks like for both professors and students. We hope you'll take time to get familiar with it here and see what classes are offered at GW. We hope you'll be inspired to designate your own course!
If you are struggling with GWServes, a link to the powerpoint and audio directions can be found by clicking here. Please reach out to any member of our team for help as we transition to GWServes.
Thank you to all those who came out! Our next Conversation on Community-Engaged Scholarship will take place on September 25th, 2018 as we welcome Zaneeta Daver, Director of the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, and Amy Cohen, Executive Director of the Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service, to speak about the the role of college faculty in encouraging and preparing students to vote.
