CCBP/SCOPE Meeting to Feature Fulbright Panel, Global Café Success Stories, and Research Posters

The final meeting of the semester of the Council on Community-Based Partnerships (CCBP) will partially overlap with the annual SCOPE Student Showcase program on Wednesday, April 13, enabling attendees to attend both events. Here is the schedule:

• 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. — Student Engagement Scholarship Showcase. This annual event, sponsored by SCOPE (Students for Community Outreach, Partnership, and Engagement), will take place in the Heritage Room of the Ferguson Center. All UA faculty and students are invited to attend. Dr. James E. McLean, CCBP executive director, oversees SCOPE activities.

• 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. — CCBP meets for lunch and final meeting of spring semester, also in the Ferguson Center’s Heritage Room. A five-student panel presentation will take place during the last 45 minutes of the Council meeting, beginning at 12:15 p.m. The panel will report on the international successes of the CCBP Global Café program and the Fulbright Advising Initiative. 

Tera Johnson, an undergraduate student in psychology, and Sarah Saeed, a graduate student in Social Work, will represent Global Café.

Speaking about their Fulbright experiences will be: Jilisa Milton, a social work graduate now working on a combined graduate degree in law and social work, who received a Fulbright English Teaching Award to Indonesia for 2014–15; Brandon Hooks, an international studies major, who is a Fulbright Teaching Award finalist to Spain for 2016–17; and Pandora White, a doctoral student in biochemistry, who is a Fulbright Research Award finalist to Poland for 2016–17. 

Cameryn Blackmore,  a doctoral student in political science, will moderate the SCOPE poster session, which is available for viewing during the Showcase and immediately before and after the Council meeting.
