Bobby Wassel Center for Service and Community Engagement Building curriculum around service learning. Center was founded last fall and is called community outreach. It is useful for class requirements, if they got in trouble with the judicial branch on campus, or if they just want to do service in the community. The center works with APO for make a difference day, which the 2010 one was the largest to date. The center works with children and homeless persons throughout the year, but especially during winter holidays. In an effort to become more collaborate they have a Student Government representative, Oscar Vazquez, on their Service and Justice fellowship committee. The center is open to hear any suggestions to outside students. Q&A- Parekh- Any suggestions to keep students engaged in their activities? It is easy to get students engaged in the very beginning. Have one day or project for a few hours that everyone can commit to rather than have 1 hour a week. Try to make the meaning last rather than spread it out the entire semester. o Grillot- Can you expand on service learning? There are different tags are linked to classes when students register so that students know which classes have service learning each semester.

What the center wants to do is “spread the wealth” to each department rather than specialized in one department. They’re currently working with individual faculty and from there they will hopefully expand to each department in each school at SLU. o Kapone- Comment: She has worked with service learning with Senate and she has continued to work with Beaumont high school students. It’s challenging, but well worth the time to see a student succeed.
