Service-learning is an excellent way to integrate theory with practice and help students deepen their comprehension of course content, increase their understanding of the complexity of social issues, and improve their ability to solve problems creatively and collaboratively. To find out how to implement service-learning in your course, join us on April 14 for this Magna online seminar. Dr. Anna Kleiner and Dr. Minh Huynh, members of Southeastern's Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Advisory Committee, will facilitate discussion following the seminar.

To further assist with the institutionalization of service-learning at Southeastern, a team of faculty and staff recently attended the Gulf South Summit on Service-Learning and Civic Engagement in Higher Education held March 3-5 in Athens, Georgia. Travel funds for faculty were provided through ULS Serves travel grants from the University of Louisiana System.
You are invited to meet the team and join the conversation as we share ideas for engaging more faculty and students in service-learning.
Team members are:
Karin Eberhardt, Visual Arts
Celina Echols, Educational Leadership and Technology
Joe Rodrigues, Psychology
