On a Wednesday evening in late March, close to 45 community partners and faculty members gathered for an evening mixer of creative collaboration! The What Keeps Us Up at Night? event was a space to support free-form connections between all stakeholders of Service-Learning to explore what keeps each of us up at night. Whether they were tossing and turning in bed thinking about how to take their course or programs in a new directions or from persisting issues that they needed advice on, participants were encouraged to share the burning questions that kept them up.
Although the Service-Learning Program has had many formal process of encouraging collaboration and generating feedback, this event was the first informal and organic mixer of its kind. With light food and drinks, participants engaged in brainstorming activities that included pipe cleaners and mingled throughout the evening. We hope this was a start in achieving uninterrupted sleep!
