Connecting students with the community for the benefit of all will be the focus of the Thursday, April 13, Studium Generale at Peninsula College.
Service Learning provides PC students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in their academic area of interest by directly working with local community groups and nonprofit partners. Service Learning is more than an internship or volunteer work, the experience empowers students to apply classroom learning and meaningful reflection to current community needs.
On April 13, Jennifer Santry will provide an overview of the PC Service Learning program. She will be joined by a panel of students and community partners who will share short presentations focused on their service learning experiences including projects with the North Olympic Land Trust and Students of Color Conference.
Santry is a faculty member and has coordinated service learning through her continued efforts to create connections and opportunities that address social and environmental concerns in our community. In addition, Santry designed and implemented the Sustainable Agriculture certificate program at Peninsula College.
Studium Generale is free and open to the public, and beings at 12:35 p.m. in the Little Theater on the Peninsula College Campus.
