Students in the Global AwarenessProgram (GAP) participated in a service project at the Danny Woo Gardens on May
6. The two-year program for juniors and seniors in any major adds a
global component to their academic studies.
“This service project helps
students understand the cultural and social dynamics of the international
district just down the road from Seattle University.” said Professor TomTaylor, GAP director. “We chose Danny Woo Gardens because it serves aging
Asian immigrant communities in our neighborhood, and it’s nice to get outside
and get dirty after the long winter.”
Although originally available
only to students in the College of Arts and Sciences, GAP has expanded to
include students of any major in any college at Seattle University.
“With the tremendous interest in
global health, international business, and multinational collaboration in
science and engineering, it became clear that we needed to open up this program
to all students,” Taylor said.
