BRISTOL, R.I. – From creating a historic preservation-based rehabilitation plan for Portsmouth’s historic St. Mary’s Church parish house to law students’ collaboration with Bradley Hospital in assisting parents with guardianship decisions for their developmentally disabled children, students from across the academic disciplines showcased their efforts within local communities at yesterday’s Community Engagement Celebration.

A gala event held inside the Campus Recreation Center Fieldhouse demonstrated the collaborative projects executed by students and faculty with community partners from across Rhode Island and parts of Massachusetts, as well as global service projects. Via student-led conversations and poster presentations, community partners and University leaders had the opportunity to discuss how students are applying their academic knowledge to address community needs.
