Scholarly Connections and Rewarding Engagements
This semester, I've been curating a series of exhibits and public events as part of a project, Scholarly Connections and Rewarding Engagements (SCoRE). I co-conceived of the project with Earleen Patterson, director of the Student Opportunities for Academic Results at SIUE, and Jessica Harris, Interim Assistant Provost at the university.
SCoRE is designed to engage students on activities beyond the classroom. For several years now, I have organized Public Thinking events for students who receive Haley scholarships. But what about students who are not scholarship recipients? This project has made it possible for us to engage a broader range of students.
What follows are a list of the activities so far:
• November 5: Visiting the STEM Center
• October 3: The Power of Visual Remixes
• September 3: Understanding majors
• Summer: Opening exhibits
