The Office of Community Engagement at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service will host a virtual Partner Fair for nonprofits, government agencies, businesses and other organizations interested in becoming a field service partner for the 2021-22 academic year.
The Partner Fair will be held from Wednesday, March 10 from 10 a.m. to noon. During the first hour, organizations will have the opportunity to have discussions with current Clinton School students about a Practicum team or Capstone project. The second hour will allow organizations to talk with second-year students set to graduate in May.
Practicum projects, selected by the Clinton School, take student teams into Arkansas communities to foster teamwork and direct application of classroom skills, while also adding tremendous value to the partner organization.
The Capstone project is the Clinton School’s culminating field service project, challenging students to put their learned skills into action by completing an in-depth public service project to benefit a government or nonprofit agency.
OCE is accepting field service project proposals for the 2021-22 academic year through March 15.
Questions can be directed to Hilary Trudell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
