Experiential Learning for Social Impact Summit
Thursday, May 26, 2022
1 Silber Way, 9th Floor, Metcalf Trustee Center Ballroom
Open to current members of the BU community
Experiential learning continues to grow as a hallmark of a Boston University education, via both new and longstanding programs across our many schools, colleges, and centers. This day-long summit will bring together BU leaders, faculty, and staff to share models and lessons learned in creating experiential learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to help them find their passion and develop professional skills.
This first summit will emphasize learning that engages external partners and creates opportunities for civic and societal impact. Together, we will dig into the data of what works, workshop ideas for improvement, and forge new intra-institutional partnerships. Discussions and table breakouts will help to summarize barriers, opportunities, and areas in need of future discussion for BU, which will be disseminated as a short report post-summit.
This event is being hosted by the Boston University Initiative on Cities, Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences, College of Arts & Sciences, Wheelock College of Education & Human Development, School of Public Health, School of Law, School of Social Work, College of Communication, and Government & Community Affairs.
