Community Partnership Symposium Set for April 23-24

UNC Charlotte will host the inaugural Engaged Scholarship and Community Partnership Symposium Thursday and Friday, April 23 - 24.

Registration is open for this free event, which is designed to facilitate creative collaboration across disciplines, divisions and fields; to outline best practices and address challenges; and to strengthen partnerships. The Charlotte Research Institute, UNC Charlotte Campus Compact and Civic Engagement Interest Group, the Center for Applied Ethics and the Center for Teaching and Learning are sponsoring the symposium, which will be in the Cone University Center.

Community engagement refers to research, creative activities, teaching and service activities that are collaboratively undertaken by UNC Charlotte faculty, staff and/ or students in partnership with community members. Engaged activities are defined by reciprocal relationships between University and community partners in which all participants recognize and value the knowledge, perspective and resources that partners contribute to the collaboration.

Study-Abroad Students to Present Plays on April 21

UNC Charlotte study-abroad students will present both live and recorded scenes from their 2014 London production of Shakespeare’s Pericles and Cervantes’ The Sultan’s Queen on Tuesday, April 21, at UNC Charlotte’s McKnight Hall in the Cone University Center.

The performance, free and open to the public, will be from 7:00 - 9:00 PM and will include a question-and-answer session with a student-faculty panel.

While studying in England last summer, the students created an innovative theatrical production that combined works of Shakespeare and Cervantes while exploring topics such as diversity, theatrical performance, language, history and the craft of theatrical writing.
