Students have practical experiences that can be drawn into the course work. Faculty members have partners/service site representatives in the community that assist in teaching and learning. Students also develop a more concrete understanding of the topic by experiencing it.
The community benefits from the time and efforts of the student. From creating a new brochure to make community members more aware of services to working to make a children’s program more educational to testing water samples, students make a difference in the quality of life in our communities.
