Blended Symposium

This will be a blended Symposium - participants will be able to attend face-to-face or virtually.

There will be strict face-to-face protocols and numbers will be limited for those who wish to participate in this format. Participants will be asked to confirm they are willing to participate face-to-face when they register.

Why attend?

Our Community Engagement Symposiums bring together not only academics, but also partners and students to share and critically discuss experiences, learnings and theoretical implications in all of the elements of CE: volunteering, service-learning and engaged research.

This is a unique space for learning and one of a kind in the community engagement space.

Past Symposiums

Rhodes University Community Engagement has been organising these spaces for sharing and learning for over six years. The last edition of the Symposium was in 2018 and a selected number of presentations were published this year in the book Bezerra et al.(eds.) (2021) Challenging the "Apartheids" of Knowledge in Higher Education through Social Innovation.
