Urban Fellows to Share Their Experiences
The University community is invited to the 2010 Urban Fellows presentations on Friday, July 23, in the River Level of the Interfaith Chapel. Beginning at 9 a.m. and running all day, students will discuss their experiences at their host sites and describe their participation in weekly seminars and community events. The program emphasizes civic engagement, promotes learning about urban issues, and encourages a celebration and appreciation for cross-cultural issues and urban life. This year’s 22 Urban Fellows have contributed nearly 300 hours of service to the community. Visit the Urban Fellows Web site for more information and for a schedule of the 2010 presentations.
