BOOM: Building on our Momentum is a learning conference featuring a series of events centered on the experience of conversation and community engagement. Sessions are designed by members of the community for the entire community and will meet participants where they are in their learning and comfort in engaging in sessions on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our diversity shines brightest when we bring our full selves together as one community. BOOM is a moment where we can come together as one community to think deeply and collectively about how we engage with each other.

Understand difference. Ask hard questions. Plan to act.

Limited Capacity full

Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to this network-building and data-gathering session about the place of community-engaged teaching, learning and service in supporting faculty and students from communities of color, low-income backgrounds, and with other diverse demographics. Participants in this session will act as a semi-structured focus group, probing important questions such as: Are there connections between participants’ experiences as members of the MHC community (students, faculty, staff), their identification with underrepresented and/or low income populations (at MHC), and their participation in community-engaged learning, service, work or research activities? How do all participants see relationships between their identities and these activities?

Facilitated by Angelica Castro and Alan Bloomgarden, Community Based Learning
