The campus community is invited to drop by the spring 2017 Service-Learning Exhibition and Celebration from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, April 27, in the Simplot Ballroom.

This is an opportunity to:

  • Speak with faculty and students about their service-learning (SL) experiences

  • Get ideas for SL projects and learn about new SL models

  • Talk with community partners about potential projects

Please join colleagues at the exhibition to recognize faculty dedication to innovative teaching, honor student accomplishments and celebrate the work of community partners. Students will showcase posters demonstrating how their SL projects provided authentic, hands-on learning and made a valuable impact in the community. Faculty and community partners will be circulating to discuss service-learning ideas.

Service-learning (SL) is an innovative teaching and learning method that integrates course content with relevant community service. Boise State offers more than 160 service-learning courses each year from over 35 departments across each college in partnership with over 100 community partners, 93 faculty members and more than 3,000 students. The Service-learning staff provides extensive support for planning, implementing and assessing SL.

Each semester the Service-Learning Program hosts a poster exhibition to celebrate the broad reach of Boise State University’s commitment to civic engagement. Refreshments will be served. RVSPs are appreciated by not required (RSVP at this link). If you need a garage parking code, contact 426-3289.
