The IGCSC hosts Sandwiches and Scholarship luncheons on the second Thursday of each month to highlight student scholarship across campus. While many students are familiar with student work going on in their own classes or majors there are few venues on campus for students to present work they have done to the broader student public. Sandwiches and Scholarship was created to draw connections between academics across campus and allow students, faculty and staff to view some of the incredible student academic work going on at Macalester.
Each month three students are asked to give a short, 10 minute presentation on a class paper, project, artistic pursuit etc. A series of questions are asked to all three presenters to draw connections between the academic processes and draw connections across disciplines. The students are chosen from across grades and departments, and presentations can take on any form they chose. All students are eligible to present, and can sign up to be a candidate by filling out this Google form.
The IGCSC collaborates with the Library to put on Sandwiches and Scholarship, and one lunch a year coinciding with National Library Week. The IGCSC also works with the Study Abroad Office to host a Sandwiches and Scholarship for study abroad returnees, as an opportunity for them to present academic work completed on a study abroad experience. The IGCSC hopes to expand the Sandwiches and Scholarship program in the future, and are always looking for ideas and feedback. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments, concerns or feedback!
All presentations take place in the Harmon Room, DeWitt Wallace Library at noon.
