Fall 2008 Community-Based Courses

Story posted September 09, 2008

Community-based courses take learning beyond the classroom. Students in these courses apply the knowledge and analytical skills from class to addressing real environmental, social and cultural issues in the local community. You might find them conducting interviews with community members, researching, evaluating policy options, testing soil or water samples, creating public art or preparing instructional materials and offering ecology, language or other lessons to students in area public schools.  Stay tuned for details of the exciting projects students will be engaged in this fall.
