Annual Project Pericles meeting: a report

Annual Project Pericles meeting:  a report

Annually directors from the entire family of colleges and universities that are part of Project Pericles are hosted by one of the member institutions.  At these gatherings there are updates from each campus and a wide array of civic engagement and social responsibility related topics are discussed.  The meeting this year was hosted by Goucher College located just outside of Baltimore, and we were treated to wonderful food, fellowship and intellectual stimulation. A highlight of this annual event is dinner at the college President’s house, and this year Sanford J. Ungar was an incredible host.

I always leave these meetings energized by what I learn about the programming at our sister institutions and come back to campus with a multitude of ideas that I share with colleagues here at Elon.

One major topic of conversation at this year’s meeting was the ‘mapping’ project that all our campuses are working on (due December 16th!!).  Our charge is to describe and document all of the various civic engagement and social responsibility initiatives on our campus.  Data from all 29 Periclean institutions will be summarized in a ‘white paper’ that will become a significant point of conversation for a meeting of key administrators from each campus that will take place this coming July.
