Moderated by Paniagua and Montemayor, a panel of Syracuse University faculty, students, and local community partners reflects on the experiences, inadequacies and successes of various community engagement initiatives as programs reopened to the public following pandemic shut-downs. Reassessment of strategies, goals and objectives has become the norm. The panel will discuss the role of community-based civic centers in reshaping priorities to effectively address the needs and disparities that hinder community building and participation.

This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Conventions.”
