Service-Learning Showcase


 

The Service-Learning Showcase is a unique opportunity for students who participate in service-learning through applied learning opportunities to showcase their experience through a research or reflective poster about the application of their course work to current community issues. The showcase is an open forum for students to interact with faculty/staff, community partners and other students to engage in conversation about Wichita State University's commitment to the public good. The showcase will be held in the fall and spring semesters, with the inaugural event occurring in Fall 2017.

Any student who is enrolled in a course with a service-learning component may enter to showcase.
