Integrated Community Partnerships
Kepple Hall 217
Jacob Markey, Lindsay Scholten, Madison Thompson, Xianghan Wang, and Yiyao Zhao
A series of client-based research design projects from Spring 2018 Integrated Media Arts Practicum will be highlighted in this panel discussion. Student researchers are required to work with a local community client to design and develop practical and functional deliverables that are both user friendly and sustainable for the business or organization. Individual student learning objectives are connected in response to the needs and requests of the community client at the start of the research project. This experiential learning opportunity offers both the student and the client the option to seek and obtain real world knowledge and skills related to various areas of visual communication design.

they ask, We Told, No one listen
Neff Lecture Hall, von Liebig Center for Science
Micah McConnell
I am doing a video project on diversity and inclusion and I interviewed 11 minorities and I ask them six questions that meant my standards on why I think it was important to be on my video. I wanted to do this because like my title says they ask, we told, and no one listened because its the truth behind my eyes. Hopefully this video that I am making helps people understand what is happening on this campus.

Making Connections, Expanding Opportunities: Undergraduate Research in Humanities, Arts, and Technology
Dr. Meredith Goldsmith, Department of English, Ursinus College
In this talk, I explore the centrality of undergraduate research to my work as faculty member, mentor, and advisor. Discussing the range of opportunities for research students in the humanities and arts, I highlight projects I have supervised in traditional, archival, and digital research settings. Drawing on the observations of the Council for Undergraduate Research, we'll consider how research projects--including digital ones--can be embedded into a wide variety of courses, and emphasize the relationship of undergraduate research to student success more broadly.

Ethically and Effectively Creating Community Partners
Brumbaugh Academic Center, Alumni Hall
Maeve Gannon, Elizabeth Hainsworth, Daniel Komar, Shannon Kriz, Whitney Miller, Hannah Oney, Savannah Parson, and Maggie Pozenel
For the purpose of exemplifying the service learning principle of "working with," rather than "working for" community partners, the Sociology Senior Seminar cohort has spent the semester in collaboration with the local chapter of the Pennsylvania Prison Society. In collaborating with this community partner, the group worked toward completing a project that would have a lasting positive and sustainable impact on the relationships between PA Prison Society members and the Huntingdon and Smithfield SCI staff. The hope being that understanding and communication will improve the experiences and work of these two groups. 
Students regularly communicated with and sought feedback from members of the PA Prison Society in order to truly listen to their needs and the needs of those whom PA Prison Society seeks to serve. A project emerged from these meetings which called for students to lead initiatives to both better understand and to improve relationships between prison staff and the PA Prison Society. In a very short amount of time, the cohort worked to avoid engaging in "toxic charity," and to truly assess and meet the needs of the Prison Society community partner in a way that best supports the goals of the organization.

Eagle Fund Update
Brumbaugh Academic Center, Alumni Hall
Matthew Alexander, Connor Close, Scott Fennell, and Caleb Pepperday
At Juniata College, students are fortunate enough to gain real world investment experience through the Eagle Fund. The Eagle Fund was started with a generous donation of $100,000 from the late Klare Sunderland. Our Portfolio Management class continually learns about investment strategies and implements them into the Eagle Fund. The strategies that we study and implement are buy and hold asset classes (45%), Momentum (30%) and buy and hold value stocks (25%). In our presentation, we will be updating Juniata College on the performance of the Eagle Fund this past year, including acquisitions and sales. The Portfolio Management team will also discuss possible investment opportunities and those we chose not to pursue.
