Brandeis School of Law Recognized at the UofL's 4th Annual Community Engagement Awards
The Community Engagement Awards event honors a student, a faculty member, and a community partner for outstanding community engagement.
The Community Partner Award was presented to Wayside Christian Mission, which is the area's largest homeless shelter. The awards program noted that "Through the creative reasoning of some of the university's most innovative educators, individuals and families in the care of Wayside are benefitting from a number of programs designed to help the city's most vulnerable residents become productive, self-supporting citizens living drug and alcohol free lives."
The partnership is an interdisciplinary program in which 20 UofL faculty and staff and over 200 students participated this past year. The units involved included the Brandeis School of Law, the College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business, Kent School of Social Work, School of Nursing, University Libraries, VP of Student Affairs, and VP of Information Technology.
