The second annual Engagement Week was a celebration of Carolina’s engaged scholarship and service with events held from Feb. 27-March 3, 2023. In total, 25 events were held this year, with attendance at all events exceeding 600, with many participants attending more than one event. Highlights included 130 attendees participating virtually for the Current State of Waste and Race in North Carolina and 107 attending the screening and question and answer session for The Smell of Money, produced by UNC-Chapel Hill alumna Jamie Berger.
“Our hope is that learning about the connections with community and hearing their perspectives during Engagement Week will plant seeds that result in more partnership and collaboration in service to the people of North Carolina,” says Lynn Blanchard, Ph.D., Director of Carolina Center for Public Service. Blanchard co-led the session, The Tar Heel Bus Tour: Stories from the Road, a roundtable discussion of organizers and alumni of the Tar Heel Bus Tour.
