Each semester, Learning by Giving asks students to write about their experiences in the classroom. This fall we decided to provide additional grant funds to students for their reflections on specific aspects related to the grant making process -- a blog contest! For our first blog contest, we asked students, “Why this course?” in hopes to learn more about why they were interested in participating in an experiential philanthropy class. We had many wonderful entries. Our winning blog post is from Chris Zhou.
Chris is an upper-level student at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Professor Lynn Fergusson leads this Learning by Giving course entitled ‘Strategic Philanthropy and Leadership’.
We will continue to post reflections from our students all year long in hopes of bringing their voices and experiences to the entire Learning by Giving community.
