CCMW is currently accepting proposals for the Summit poster session. The poster session will run from 1:00pm to 2:30pm. The poster session is an excellent opportunity for members of the higher education community to share information about community issues and community engaged teaching, learning and research through 1) class presentations on community engaged projects, 2) presentations on your own engaged teaching, learning and research, 3) participation in mini round table sessions about pressing community issues. Students, community, faculty, student affairs and other presenters will disseminate information either via tri-fold poster display, handout, demonstration, laptop display, and/or another means fitting on half of a 2’ x 6’ table. There will also be poster display stands available. Please note that there will not be any multi-media AV equipment available. Presenters are responsible for all presentation, display, and demonstration materials. A handout or some other instructive/informative materials or take away is recommended. Wireless internet will be available.
