Published: September 4, 2013.
Twenty community partners will be participating in the Lewis University Third Annual Service Fair.
The Lewis University Community Engagement Cooperative (CEC) will host the fair from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 5 in the University Dining Room.
Community partners from Lewis University and the surrounding community will share their hopes, goals and ideas for serving with them in the community. Sunny Hill Nursing Home, Easter Seals and Loaves & Fishes are among the community partners expected to attend.
Service learning faculty and students as well as student organization members and other service-minded people are invited to attend the fair. “Partnerships can be formed to promote justice and support efforts to meet the hopes and needs of community members,” Dr. Christie Billups, Coordinator of the Office of Service Learning commented.
The CEC is a collaborative group of Lewis University entities who seek to grow strategic partnerships in order to enhance student success and address external needs in the community. It is comprised of the Office of Service Learning, Student Development and Leadership, University Ministry Outreach, Career Services and Multicultural Student Services.
Two campus partners, The Department of Veterans Affairs and Recruitment and Health and Counseling, will also be on hand to seek service learning students to strengthen what they can offer here at Lewis University.
