Info fairs offer options for student service

​As UIndy students clear the holiday cobwebs from their heads and return next week for the start of Semester II, they’ll have a chance to learn about many local opportunities for volunteer work and service-learning projects.

Presented by our Center for Service-Learning & Community Engagement, a series of Community Partners Fair​s begins Wednesday and continues the following week. Representatives from a broad range of worthy organizations will man information booths from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day, and no two days are the same.
