Join your colleagues and journal editors from around the country for a conference focused on writing about service and engagement. Previous conferences in this series have provided time, space, and resources to assist faculty, professional staff, graduate students, and community partners either planning to work, or working on journal manuscripts or book chapters related to service-learning and community engagement. Participants discussed ideas with editors from major publications, explored publishing outlets, received mentoring from Senior Faculty Coaches, shared ideas with peers, and had time to write and revise.

What is the difference between a roundtable and a symposium? The primary difference between a roundtable event and a symposium is the level of structure. Roundtables are less formal and provide a venue where every participant is expected to contribute to the discussion.
Symposia involve one or more formal presentations (in the form of research papers, essay, or white papers) followed by active participation on the part of the audience. Symposia are often organized to explicitly include opposing perspectives.
