Professors Stephanie Gibson and Jamie Miranda of St. Philip’s College will discuss how to organize and engage voluntary students through Zoom and an online learning platform. The process produces a college-level literary/art journal consisting of student writing and artwork and edited by a student editorial staff with faculty/staff guidance. The journal provides opportunities for student scholarships through grant funding and can be utilized for institutional fund raising to further support student success. Ask questions and join the discussion in a live Q&A following the presentation!
