Students Engage as They Chart Community Activities

This week students taking classes through Davidson's Center for Civic Engagement presented posters highlighting their recent work. Held in the college's Lilly Family Gallery, it was the largest poster session in four years, with 46 projects covering diverse topics such as local government communications, nonprofit recruiting strategies, the local food industry, and more.

Throughout the semester, students learned hands-on about different aspects of the community, applying and expanding upon knowledge gained in their classrooms. For example, students in Prof. Tim Chartier's finite math class worked on a strategy for the local nonprofit Our Towns Habitat for Humanity to recruit more homeowners. They researched statistics about the organization and the home ownership process, and presented their research visually at the poster session.
