Community Engagement Fellows
ICEE Community Engagement Fellows bring together faculty, staff, administrators, students, and community members to advance community engagement at UNC Greensboro and beyond. We invite you to explore the 2020 opportunities to enhance your community-engaged practices.
Be Here Club with Elise Eifert and Monica Scovell
The Be Here Club (BHC) is an informal monthly social/networking gathering intended to make the larger UNCG community a little smaller. Academic professionals, including faculty, administrators, and staff often operate in insulated channels with diverse responsibilities, therefore making communal socialization, integration, and partnerships challenging. BHC is also a forum to encourage engagement with community members and partners from outside of UNC Greensboro to add to the aesthetic of Greensboro and create real opportunities for societal improvement on a local level. Above all else, the BHC is simply a place to find, and build, camaraderie and comfort for those who call UNCG and Greensboro home.
Community Engagement Writing Group with Rachel Boit and Michael Hemphill
The Community Engagement Writing Learning Community aims to connect community-engaged scholars to explore opportunities and challenges related to writing for scholarly publication through collaborating, networking, and supporting each other’s ideas. This group will meet weekly throughout the fall and spring semester. During each weekly meeting we provide individual and collaborative writing space. The purpose of this group is to establish an interdisciplinary community of practice among faculty whose scholarship connects to community engagement. Specific activities of the learning community will include networking, sharing writing projects and goals, and time for individual or collaborative writing. Periodically, the group will host guest speakers to share their expertise on relevant topics.
