McKeen Center Symposium Celebrates a Year of Doing Good Archives

Each spring, the McKeen Center for the Common Good holds a symposium on campus to recognize the community-focused research and service of students over the past year.

On Thursday, May 4, Morrell Lounge was decorated with posters representing 87 projects that included direct volunteering, summer fellowships, and community-engaged learning spanning the disciplines, from economics to education.

Dhivya Singaram ’17, a Mckeen Center fellow, organized the symposium, roughly dividing the projects into four broad categories: building sustainable communities, education, public health, and social justice.
