Final Service Learning Reflection (4): due last week of classes

What was especially meaningful or important, in terms of your own learning, during your service learning experience?

How are you poised to leave this experience? In particular, what is especially compelling for you to do next as a person, learner, or community member? (This could be tied to an issue or group you want to investigate, strategies for advancing your own skills and knowledge, etc.)

I hope you all had a wonderful summer and that your quarter is going well!  We would like to invite you to our Civic & Community Engagement meeting on Friday November 9 from 1:30-3:30 in Student Services 1010 A,B.  At the meeting, we will have a chance to network, we will discuss current civic and community engagement projects, and lunch will be served!

We are in the process of reorganizing the Civic & Community Engagement Committee into an Advisory Council format with members who  play an active role in the development of specific community engagement projects.  With that in mind, I’ve created a brief survey to find out your thoughts about our reorganization.  Whether you are a current committee member or not, please take the time to complete the survey, and feel free to send the link to anyone who may be interested in weighing in.  You can find it at: http://eee.uci.edu/survey/CCESurvey

I look forward to seeing you on November 9!  Please RSVP to Zahra Ahmed at ahmedz@uci.edu
