Get involved in making a difference in the community.

Students could earn credit as they assisted in conducting research and helping mitigate the pandemic on our campus, in our community, and in the world.
This course connected LAS undergraduates with faculty and community organizations, creating partnerships to help solve a real-world problem, the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants advanced their leadership skills and social responsibility while experiencing hands-on learning and making a lasting impact on the world.
