All first year students engage in a common service event that is then linked to a common reading in their first year seminar courses, transforming a stand-alone service blitz to service-learning.
Meaningful Leadership in a Democracy
This is an interdisciplinary course that requires students to participate in a reading program, linking the college students to at-risk elementary students in the school with the highest level of poverty in the community.
This is a sociology course that is wholly designed as a service-learning course, where students serve at a non-profit agency for a minimum of forty hours over the course of the semester while continually reflecting on those experiences.
The Art of Service
Art students created a logo for the Sonya Project (a reading/mentorship program through our local school district). Art students also created the logo and pieces of art for a local homeless shelter.
Service as Science
Biology students baked and decorated cookies to look like the HIV/AIDS virus and other cells. The students attached information about HIV/AIDS. They then sold the cookies and donated the money to HIV/AIDS research.
