Moving Beyond the Classroom

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Each semester, College faculty seek to encourage and inspire their students to work in their local community, hoping to instill a tradition of involvement that will last beyond the college years.  Through research and volunteer projects, students reach out to local non-profit organizations, developing their academic research skills while gaining real experience they can draw on as they move closer to their post-collegiate, professional lives.

Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences create numerous opportunities for their students to become active in the community.  For some examples of how CAS students and faculty are taking an active role in their community during the Spring 2010 semester please follow the links below:
