The Office of Community Engagement at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service will host its third annual Partner Fair for nonprofits, government agencies, businesses and other organizations interested in becoming a field service partner for the 2019-20 academic year.
The Partner Fair will be held from 1-2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 8 at Sturgis Hall (1200 President Clinton Avenue).
The event is designed to allow community partners and students opportunities to network and discuss potential Practicum and Capstone projects.
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 (final) 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 2019-20 academic year through March 18. Questions can be directed to Beth Quarles at email@example.com.
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.
