SERVE-LEARN-SUSTAIN ANNOUNCES 22 AWARDS SUPPORTING STUDENT LEARNING

January 30, 2017

Dr. Jennifer Hirsch serves as the Director for the Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain.  She is an applied cultural anthropologist specializing in community sustainability, cultural diversity, experiential education, and network building.

SLS had a fantastic response to its call for proposals to support courses, ongoing projects, or short-term activities that enhance student learning around our theme of “creating sustainable communities.” We are proud to announce that we have given out 22 awards, https://www.contact.gatech.edu/sls/subscribe, to the following faculty, instructors, and staff representing https://www.contact.gatech.edu/sls/subscribe.

Awardees will collaborate with SLS to finalize their course/activity/project plans and will submit deliverables when they conclude. We look forward to sharing some of those out with you via this blog and the website, in the summer and the fall.

SLS will issue more calls for proposals in AY2017-18, to be announced via our Email List. If you’re not yet subscribed, please sign up on our website, here: https://www.contact.gatech.edu/sls/subscribe

Congratulations to our awardees! We are honored to partner with you as we prepare students to develop sophisticated and effective approaches to engaging in the important work of collaborating with diverse groups of people to create sustainable communities where people and nature thrive, now and in the future. Thanks for your dedication and collaboration.

Best,
