Project Plan[edit]


  1. What is the purpose of the meeting and why is it important to your community?
    This is to further engage students and faculty at Fordham University in Wikimedia project participation.
  2. If applicable, what benefits have you seen from doing this kind of meeting in the past?
    Fordham University has already hosted several Wikipedia meetups. The school is starting to document those at en:Category:Fordham University meetups.
  3. How will you let participants know about the meeting?
    Fordham University will advertise the meeting internally and also in its own email lists. The event is open to the public.
  4. How will you keep participants engaged after the meeting is over?
    Some people at Fordham University have already been participating in Wikipedia events since 2015. Now that multiple people have participated in multiple events, it seems more worthwhile to try to make meetings more organized.
  5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?


Note: In addition to your project-specific measures of success, you will also be asked to report on some Global Metrics at the end of your final report. Please keep this in mind as you plan, and we'll support you as you begin your project.
