Alfie Scholars Research Now Available Online

by Rochelle Lundy on 2022-02-15T12:10:00-08:00 | 0 Comments

The Alfie Scholars program trains students to become leaders for civility who are committed to addressing social wrongs through dialogue and action, to contributing to the conversation or initiating one, to using their voice to enlighten and speak for the voiceless, to remaining curious, open-minded, and respectful, and to promoting social justice and our shared humanity.

Each summer, Alfie Scholars attend a specially tailored Seattle University Core Curriculum course. As part of this course, they research, present, and write about an issue of social significance on which they hope to lead change for the common good. At the end of the summer, all scholars present their papers at a professional-level conference.

A dedicated reference librarian from the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons supports the Alfie Scholars as they conduct their research and the library now celebrates the work of these civility leaders on ScholarWorks, Seattle University’s online repository. Review schedules from the 2020 and 2021 Alfie Scholars Conferences and click on a presentation title to access more information about the presentation or read the accompanying paper.

Interested in even more Seattle University student scholarship? The ScholarWorks repository showcases a variety of work created by Seattle University students, including undergraduate and graduate theses, dissertations, and culminating projects, SUURJ: Seattle University Undergraduate Research Journal, and more! If you have questions about the ScholarWorks repository, please contact Rochelle Lundy, Scholarly Communication Officer, Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons.
