“World Class Lunch”

There is a “World Class Lunch and Learn” hosted by the WORLD Office on Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. This is an opportunity to learn about the International Faculty Development Seminar, and upcoming related opportunities. If you are interested, please RSVP here. If you have any questions about this event, please direct them to Roxanne Lewis at

Faculty/Partner Mixer

Also on Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 2-3 p.m., the Center for Community Engagement is hosting a Faculty/Partner Mixer in the Faculty Lounge, CUB 105. This event is a wonderful chance to network with our nonprofit community partners and to learn how community engaged learning can be embedded into courses. This mixer allows faculty to share their expertise with community partners and collaborate on how your research or courses can help the community partners meet their mission. This month’s networking will focus around the topics of Economic Development. You may see community partners, such as West Volusia Habitat for Humanity and others who do work in the issue area of economic development. One partnership that has flourished over the years is Stetson’s VITA Program, where student volunteers file taxes for low-income families free of charge. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program operates in collaboration with United Way of Volusia-Flagler counties.

If you are interested, please register for this amazing networking opportunity by Tuesday, Feb. 11. If you anticipate any barriers to your access, participation, transportation to, or inclusion in this opportunity, please reach out to the Center for Community Engagement (CCE).
