NEWTON – Emily Garcia, a fashion communication & promotion student from Natick, presented work at the Lasell College Fall Connected Learning Symposium.
Garcia presented “My Cultural Background.”
The Connected Learning Symposium at Lasell College occurs twice a year to showcase student work tied to real-world clients and applications outside of the classroom.
The event has run since 2002, though this fall’s was the first to take on a theme – diversity, equity, and inclusion – as seen in more than half of the day’s presentations.
“This symposium was a special one,” said Jim Ostrow, vice president for academic affairs. “Students were poised, confident, and creative educators for our community. In praising student work, we also celebrate the superb work of our faculty.”
In addition to Garcia’s work, the day featured events and presentations including a professional business negotiation for the location of the 2032 Olympics, an athletic training clinic, performance art, sustainable fashion design, media ethics, crime theory, intergenerational genealogy, and more.
