Center for Community Engagement offers “Stone Soup” and faculty support

A cup of vegetable soup will be served to faculty and instructional staff who stop by the Center for Community Engagement Friday, March 5, to learn more about service learning and public scholarship.

“Stone Soup Friday” will be observed from noon to 1:30 p.m. March 5, with award-winning UND colleagues on hand in the Center at 317 Cambridge Street to discuss community-based teaching and research. Information will be available on how to apply for up to $1,000 in project support from the newly established Stone Soup Fund. The Center’s stone soup theme is derived from the legend of two travelers who start a soup from a stone, coaxing contributions from villagers who make enough to feed the travelers and the village.

More information about the fund and a short application is available at www.communityengagement.und.edu. The Stone Soup Fund was created from contributions from the UND Office of Academic Affairs, Bremer Bank, the John L. and James S. Knight Foundation, the Greystone Group, the North Dakota Mill and Elevator and Altru Foundation.
