Community Events

Community events are free and open to the public. These events are delivered by current Western students using their skills learned in the classroom. Academic experiences like these are terrific for connecting students’ academic learning with real hands-on training. Students retain information better when they practice or teach what they learned. Experiences like these will help our students grow academically while providing community members an educational experience.

Make Change is a new film series and community conversation program. Each event will consist of a popular documentary covering an important community issue. Following the film, participants will debrief and engage in reflection as we challenge all to think about ways we—together—can make change in our community. A light dinner will be provided. We ask participants to bring change or a small donation, if able. All of the donations will go to the community action project determined by participants of the film series and implemented together in the fall of 2018.

Stay tuned for future films and dates for January-April. 

This project is funded by the Positive Impact grant received from Campus Compact.
