Considering offering your students richer content through experiential, community relevant learning? Let’s chat: over coffee, on a walk around the quad, or via Teams. Summer is a time of dreams. Let’s dream together!

GO BIG:
– Integrate 15-25 hours of direct or indirect service where students learn from community partners and their experience while practicing what you teach!

START SMALL:
– Blend authentic community engagement into your teaching through guest speakers, field trips, &/or mini-projects that put students in contact with folks off campus.

FIND YOUR SWEET SPOT:
– Anything you do to better engage your students is a gift. We’d be happy to talk with you about what you already do & how you might shift something small to enhance both the student experience and our community.
