Local Issue Coffee Hours are an opportunity for faculty and nonprofit community partners to come together in a relaxed environment to consider future collaborations. Topics are typically focused on a single issue such as affordable housing, the needs of the elderly, nutrition needs among area youth, etc. The agenda is light and the mood is informal but the hope is that, as smart people gather in the same room, they'll form new ideas and productive partnerships. Faculty can find ways to connect their students to local needs via service-learning and nonprofit leaders can offer themselves as a resource to faculty. A light breakfast is served.

This Local Issues Coffee Hour is for faculty and nonprofit leaders interested or involved in student fundraising activities for various local and international causes. How can App State faculty and community partners best assist our students to engage in philanthropy and fundraising to support important issues?

Wednesday, October 18th, 8:30AM-10:00AM


  • To connect faculty and community nonprofits around a singular issue for warm conversation and potential collaboration.
