Service Learning: A Must Do for Spring

As we consider the theme of social justice during the spring term, integrating service learning into one or more classes is a natural fit.  Service learning can help our students understand the perspective of others who may not have had the same privileges that they have enjoyed.  Wade (2007) notes (see attachment), students need to understand the "injustice [that] has created the need for service in the first place."  If you are interested in adding a service component to your spring term class, please contact Ellen Hay for assistance.  The attached materials may also serve as a beginning point.

Mark your calendars for spring ProFair which will be held on Tuesday, March 19th.  Employer registration opened on Friday and we already have over 20 companies registered.  Employers are interested in hiring our students for full-time employment, internships and summer positions.  Again, please encourage your advisees/students to attend.  We will be visiting classes to ProFair at the beginning of spring term.  If you would like us to visit your classes, please contact Johnna Adam.
