ADP Visit to Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland
On Wednesday, August 16, 2017, ADP National Manager Jennifer Domagal-Goldman and ADP Intern Cameron Lee visited Coppin State University (Md.), ADP’s newest member campus, to give a presentation about civic engagement and learning outcomes during the institution’s Professional Development Week. They were greeted with a very warm welcome and met many incredible faculty who gave them some insight into Coppin’s future plans in civic and community engagement work.
The theme of the day’s activities was “Connecting General Education Outcomes to Civic Engagement and Responsive Citizenship” and the ADP presentation on Engaged Citizenship was moderated by Claudia Nelson, an assistant professor of Criminal Justice and Applied Social and Political Sciences and the faculty member who extended the invitation for ADP to visit Coppin.
After making their presentation and fielding some stimulating questions, the ADP representatives got the chance to listen to Dr. John Hudgins, Associate Professor of Sociology, give a talk about the Oasis Center initiative, which will hopefully link Coppin students in need to the resources they may have trouble accessing otherwise. Dr. Hudgins’ session was engaging, extremely informative, and thought-provoking, and the ADP representatives look forward to seeing Dr. Hudgins’ work with Oasis in the future.
Before the ADP representatives left Coppin after a brilliant morning of learning and sharing ideas and knowledge, they stopped in front of a Coppin State University sign and took a picture to commemorate the experience! Thank you very much Coppin State University for being such gracious guests. ADP looks forward to continuing and advancing our relationship in the future.
