The Student Engagement Network will host its first-ever Student Engagement Expo on Monday, November 6 at 5 p.m. The Student Engagement Network is an initiative between the Office of Undergraduate Education, Student Affairs, and Outreach and Online Education focused on increasing student participation and helping students find ways to make a positive impact on the Penn State community
The event will take place in the Art Gallery in the HUB-Robeson Center and is open to any students, faculty, and community members interested in the topic. The Singing Lions and None of the Above (N.O.T.A) will perform for the opening hour as 13 Penn State students will present their academic learnings with poster exhibits. At 6 p.m. in Freeman Auditorium, a group of students will present short personal stories on “finding their why” at Penn State.
Susan Russell will present a speech about the power of student engagement at 7 p.m. in Freeman Auditorium. Russell is an actor, playwright, and professor in the School of Theater, as well as the Penn State laureate for 2014-2015.
The Student Engagement Expo grew out of the Engaged Scholarship Expo, which ran from 2013 to 2015. This year, however, the Student Engagement Network will take over for the Council on Engaged Scholarship — the creators and runners of the original events.
