Community service–in Norton, New Orleans or Ghana–provides a concrete and transformative learning experience that prepares us all to be better scholars, citizens, and leaders. SSSR encourages students, faculty and staff to move beyond a charity-based model of service to one of full and sustainable partnerships in which all participants benefit in significant ways.
But how does SSSR do this?
SSSR staff members:
- Support student-initiated clubs and service projects through our collaboration with SGA's Service, Engagement and Activism (SEA) Board.
- Work with faculty to support experiential learning classes that send students into the community to work with local agencies on programs that make our community a better place to live and learn.
- Create service opportunities that bring together students, staff, faculty, and the community.
- Help YOU develop opportunities to make a difference.
