Engagement Fair

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community…Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” – Cesar Chavez

Want to connect with others working to make the world a better place? Want to share the accomplishments of your community-campus partnership? Looking to identify new partners? Then make sure you attend the C2UExpo 2015 Engagement Fair on Thursday May 28!

Taking place in room 252 of the Carleton University MacOdrum Library from 3:00pm – 5:30pm, the Fair will be host to several different community and campus-based organizations.

As part of C2UExpo’s overall Engagement Afternoon, you can start by enjoying refreshments while you browse through the Fair, and then head upstairs to the Library’s Discovery Centre where you can engage with over 20 Poster Presenters, or sign out one of our “living books” as part of our Living Library event.
