Students to present service work Wednesday

UIndy’s “Education for Service” philosophy will be on full display Wednesday during the semiannual Celebration of Service in Schwitzer Student Center.

More than 70 students representing 22 courses and student organizations will share their stories of volunteerism and service-learning – from local projects to international efforts – during the Student Service Expo from 11 a.m. to noon in the Schwitzer Atrium.

From noon to 1 p.m., UIndy Hall A will host presentations by Dr. Gerburg Garmann, assistant dean of Interdisciplinary Studies & Service-Learning; Carina Grainey and UIndy grad Laura McGaughey of College Mentors for Kids; and Betsy Knott, director of Career & Community Integration for UIndy’s Professional Edge Center.

The Celebration of Service is presented by the Center for Service-Learning & Community Engagement, in partnership with Interdisciplinary Programs and the Office of Student Affairs. L/P credit will be offered, and students attending also can enter a drawing for a bookstore gift card.
