2016 Appalachian Summit on Service-Learning

Posted by Carson-Newman University on January 11, 2016

The Bonner Center for Service-Learning & Civic Engagement at Carson-Newman University is excited to announce the registration for the 2016 Appalachian Summit on Service-Learning is now open!

Last year, forty-five regional and local students, faculty, and community partners attended with topics varying from “The Role of Student Leader Development in Successful Service-Learning Experiences” to “Music and Community Building in Appalachia.” The 2016 Appalachian Summit will be held Saturday, February 6, 2016. Please save the date!! We are determined to make 2016 our best Summit yet. The overarching focus of the Summit is to create tangible outcomes to assist faculty in integrating service-learning into the classroom and initiating greater civic dialogue. The regional focus will broaden civic development and resilience in Appalachia. We are excited to be able to host such an intersectional dialogue about Appalachia.

You can register here.


There is a non-refundable registration fee of $25 for individuals or $120 for groups of five participants. Attendance for students and AmeriCorps VISTAs is free. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments. You can reach us through Anya Piotrowski at apiotrowski@cn.edu or on the phone at 865-471-4830.

We hope to see you there!
