Community- Campus Networking Event April 14th

Dear Service-Learning and Community Engagement colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the next Community - Campus Networking Event on April 14, from 11:45 am to 1:15 pm. Here is the Zoom link:

This event will bring together Elon faculty members and our area community partners to discuss potential collaborative projects for the summer and/or fall terms of 2021. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will offer this meeting as a virtual event.

As part of the Networking event, we will provide three Zoom breakout rooms that will allow you to meet faculty members interested in working with you in one of the following three areas (identified from the most recent Alamance County Community Assessment and the Boldly Elon strategic plan):

* Education

* Economic development

* Healthcare

During the event, faculty members will have the opportunity to visit one or more breakout rooms where they can meet with you to learn about your work and explore potential partnerships. Please use the link below to indicate your interest in attending the event and also your breakout room preferences.

We would like to ask you, our community partners, to select the thematic area that resonates the most with your work or that you most identify with, and then work with colleagues in your breakout room by sharing the current status of your organization and anticipated areas where partnerships may benefit both you and Elon students. For meeting preparation purposes, please identify these possibilities in advance so that you can share them concisely (2 minutes max). That way all community organizations in a breakout room can have a chance to speak. After partners have shared, the floor will be open for general questions and discussion among the participants until the next group arrives.  Partners will remain in their designated room until the end of the three sessions. Please arrive by 11:40 and plan to remain until 1:15, if at all possible.  If not able to do so, please indicate on your survey. 

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you.
