Social Concerns Fair

2023 Social Concerns Fair

This year we’re taking a new approach to connecting the campus and the community. Instead of doing a one day fair–as we’ve done in the past–we’ll host six separate evenings during the spring semester. Each evening will be focused on a particular theme that highlights the work community partners do and invites deeper engagement with students, faculty, and staff. The idea is that by spreading opportunities for connection over the spring semester we’ll continue to deepen standing partnerships and create some new ones in the mix.
