Community Experiences and Student Learning: Follow the Blogs
Core to their learning in the University Studies Program, all students will be engaged in on and off campus Community Experiences. For real-time examples of how community experiences enhance student learning, you may enjoy following the alternative spring break blogs of UW Oshkosh students next week:
- New Orleans: Rebuilding
- New York: Diversity and Inclusion
- Washington DC: Hunger and Homelessness
- Guatemala: Sustainability
- Honduras: Education and Leadership
Thanks to Michael Lueder (and many others) for organizing these alternative spring break trips. Michael is also the coordinator of Quest III Community Experiences. He is supporting instructors and Community Partners as these courses are being developed.
