The WKU Center for Citizenship & Social Justice invites you to join us on Tuesday, February 19th from 4:00-5:00 pm at the Downing Student Union (DSU), Room 2123 for the first lecture of the Spring 2019 semester of our series, “Social Justice Salons” (SJS) - a lecture series for WKU faculty, staff, students, and community members to gather and discuss complex contemporary issues surrounding citizenship and social justice. The typical format of “Social Justice Salons” includes a short presentation on a topic, followed by facilitated discussion.

“Social Justice Salons” will be held monthly during the 2019 Spring semester. The February salon lecture will be led by Dr. Tim Evans of the Folk Studies Department. Dr. Evans will present “Education and Community: Service Learning as a High Impact Practice.”

February’s salon is an excellent opportunity for faculty engaged in project-based learning to get some insight into partnering with community-based organizations. It’s also an opportunity for students to to explore service learning as a type of course experience in which they may want to enroll in the future. It’s also an opportunity for community leaders to determine if service learning partnerships would benefit their organizations. The salon is open to anyone interested. Refreshments will be provided! If you have any questions, contact leah.ashwill@wku.edu or call 270-745-3218.
