Lakeshore Nature Preserve updates master plan, seeks student input

The UW-Madison Lakeshore Nature Preserve is currently updating their decade-old master plan by creating a comprehensive strategic planning process to guide the use and management of the preserve. In 2006, the preserve created a master plan with the goal of protecting its natural features and providing enjoyment for the community. Now, with hopes of improving the preserve, UW-Madison students are being asked to contribute to the planning process by completing a survey about their use of the preserve.

Morgridge Center selects Fellows to enhance community-based scholarship

In an effort to further support community-engaged scholarship, the Morgridge Center for Public Service hired 10 faculty members as “Morgridge Fellows.” Fellows were selected through a juried process. They will participate in a year-long learning community with the goals of participating in “teaching, research, and scholarly activities that are performed in equitable, mutually beneficial collaboration with communities to fulfill campus and community objectives,” the Morgridge Center said in a statement. In the upcoming year, with a focus on developing community-based learning courses and research, the fellows will be able to build a unique interdisciplinary team of mentors and peers from the teaching and learning community. Michael Maguire, one of the fellows selected for the program, said the fellows present their professional and personal life experiences in order to collaborate on the Community-Engaged Scholarship. “At monthly meetings, fellows will share dialogue and resources related to their role at UW-Madison, contributing to the robust body of knowledge and inquiry about what contributes to excellence in CES,” Maguire said. In addition to discussing personal experiences related to the scholarship, fellows collaborate in an effort to make positive changes to CES. Maguire said the fellows analyze CES during monthly meetings by “identifying past and current CES assets, and areas for expanding or making a positive change to CES on our campus and in the communities we serve.”
