Graduate Academic Affairs
Paul M. Vanderburgh, Associate Provost
St. Mary's Hall 200
While Graduate Academic Affairs does not directly administer service learning activities, graduate students generally have the option to participate in many of the service learning opportunities open to undergraduates, may also support service learning initiatives in their roles as graduate assistants, and may have the opportunity to participate in class-based service learning activities as well. For example, as part of their coursework in Mechanical Engineering, graduate students have provided energy audits and recommendations to various community partners while MBA students can develop consultation and marketing skills through community-based projects.
In partnership with the Fitz Center for Leadership in Community, Graduate Academic Affairs is also sponsoring the Graduate Community Fellows program in which a select cohort of graduate students are afforded the opportunity to connect learning in the classroom with experiences in the community through commitment to community partner agencies.
