Intro to SLS and Service Learning and Community Engagement Orientation

This SLCE (Service Learning and Community Engagement) orientation session offers students foundations for service learning and community engagement work in their courses.  Students who are in courses that have a specific SLCE component-- such as a required service learning experience or a real world project with a partner-- are strongly encouraged to attend.  The session will cover safe and respectful behaviors in communities unfamiliar to you; power, voice, and access to resources in Atlanta and the region; tips and best practices for partner-based collaborations off campus. The session will be interactive, and is open to students in any course or major!

Liam's Legacy Symposium: Facing Climate Change: Tools and Stories that Connect Communities

Presented by Serve-Learn-Sustain, in partnership with School of History and Sociology (through a grant from the Gertrude and William C. Wardlaw Fund in support of the Conference on Human Rights, Changes and Challenges).

This fall's Liam's Legacy Symposium will feature two dynamic speakers on the topic of community history, story telling, and and our changing environment. Julia Drapkin will join us from ISeeChange, an organization she founded to empower communities and connect them to each other through climate-change-related data collection. Jim Elliott, an environmental sociologist, will visit from Rice University and will discuss his research on environmental hazards, disasters, and urban places.  

‚ÄčAbout Liam Rattray & Liam's Legacy:

The Liam's Legacy Symposium honors the memory of Liam Rattray, an outstanding and socially-committed Georgia Tech Honors Program student who was tragically killed by a drunk driver just a few weeks after his graduation, in 2011.  We mourn his death, but we also celebrate his life in this annual event that carries his name and draws upon his legacy of engagement and activism.
