Events and festivals have great social impacts on communities. Students in HMT570 - Event Planning & Coordination, will plan and host a series events that aim to contribute to the quality of life in Lexington. Each student group will plan a small event that strengthens community life through providing unique activities, building awareness of diverse cultures and identities, and acting as a source of community pride. Event topics and themes will be proposed by students, discussed in class and finally determined by the instructor and advisory board of the class. Recycling and sustainability issue of a local park, an unemployed or undereducated parent, or a collection of perspectives from local community, is a call to learning and service.
