A part of the March 2015 Institute on Community-Engaged Teaching, Research & Scholarship, the Engagement Expo showcased meaningful engagement taking place between students, faculty, and staff and local, national, and/or global communities. The multi-media exhibits showcased events and programs which address community issues, such as service-learning or community-engaged learning courses or internships, community-engaged research, products developed as a result of engagement (e.g. films, websites, databases, surveys), and more.
The Engagement Expo was free and open to the public.
