Spotlights on Service-Learning Courses
NursingProfessor Barbara Hill engages students during their last semester in the nursing program in service-learning to develop intercultural competence, which is an important skill in the field. Students select a nonprofit organization, and they commit 6 hours of service to this organization of their choice.
After their service, students write what's called a "Community Assessment" answering:
- Who are the people that the community organization assists?
- What happened during your service experience?
- How has your perspective changed?
