The McGovern Center held our first annual Community Partner Breakfast last week as a way to say “thank you” to the organizations that were directly involved with our center in helping to create service-learning and community-based learning opportunities for our students. We encouraged our community partners to reach out if they had an idea for a service-learning project or other opportunity for our students to serve.
We also presented the Abbott House with the “Community Partner of the Year” award. The Abbott House has been especially involved and committed to engaging our students in service and community-based learning projects. We wanted to thank them, and all of our community partners, for helping to teach our student the importance of service.
Tomorrow, we’ll be sharing a post about community-based learning– what it is and how DWU students have jumped into this kind of service this year! Check back!
