On Thursday, Oct. 24, at 5:30 p.m., the Andrews University Celebration of Community Engagement will be held at the Newbold Auditorium in Buller Hall. The annual event is sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the James White Library and the Office of Research & Creative Scholarship. A poster session and plenary session including project videos, music and a keynote address will be held at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m., respectively.

This inaugural event marks the celebration of community development programs created and supported by Andrews University. Through this forum, the University hopes to create a platform to join alongside partners in celebration of deepening relationships which have been strengthened while serving others. The program will also emphasize the relationship between research, knowledge, community engagement and service.

The keynote address will feature Charles Stoddard, a banker, philanthropist and founder of Grand Angels, a Michigan investment organization. Stoddard will address the audience on the topic “Serving Others.” In addition to this keynote presentation, more than a dozen University departments and clubs will highlight community engagement projects led by their professors and students. Presentations will be subsequently displayed and archived by the James White Library.

This event is open to all, and community members are invited to attend. There is no admission fee.
