Everyone learned a great deal from the presenters, Dr. Jacobsen’s Theater Students gave the audience a new way to think about immigration with their presentation, the showcases from community engaged courses highlighted the service, research, learning and action that students undertook throughout the semester and the concluding panels examined community engaged scholarship in depth- all great examples of engagement with our community and our scholarship.
