Wells Presents Celebrating Scholarship and Engagement Series

04-02-14 - Demonstrations, discussions, workshops and other events give Wells students and guests the opportunity to showcase scholarly research, community work and academic successes.

Wells College is proud to present the fourth semester’s Celebrating Scholarship and Engagement Series on April 9, 2014. Over five dozen Wells students, faculty, staff and guests will contribute to a comprehensive schedule of presentations and discussions across campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

The Celebrating Scholarship and Engagement Series was inaugurated at Wells in the spring of 2012 to give members of the community a chance to share their work in internships, senior capstone projects, independent studies and other academic projects. No classes are held during the day in order to give all students the chance to attend events and learn from their classmates' academic experiences and achievements. The first semester contained 5 days of events with separate themes chosen by faculty and staff; the series currently consists of one day per semester dedicated to community events.

This semester’s CSE day features a broad variety of topics such as the integration of academics and athletics; foreign language study and cultural scholarship; international political relations; volunteer and internship opportunities nearby and abroad; and senior thesis work in history, theatre and dance, sociology and anthropology, and other fields. Ellen Sziede of the African Conservation Experience and Muna Ndulo, Professor of Law and Director of the Institute for African Development at Cornell University, will be the special guest speakers for the day. Presentations styles range from direct lectures to walk-through exhibits, poster sessions, debates, panel discussions, and more.
