Join a roundtable discussion with other students as we explore more effective ways to be change makers in our communities and campus life. Corey Dolgon, Sociology Professor and Stone Hill Colleges’ Director of the Downtown Center for Community Engagement will lead this conversation. He's an author and editor of the new Cambridge Handbook of Service Learning and Community Engagement. Students and staff alike have big passions to be civic change makers, but we can often feel powerless even knowing where to start.
