    Engaging Graduate Students in Service-Learning: A Happy Hour Conversation  
    Friday, April 12, 3:30-5 p.m., Pigott 305   
    Thursday, April 25, 3:30-5 p.m., Casey Commons   
    At Seattle University, our commitment to community and social justice is central to our mission, yet for educators, it is not always clear how to apply that mission in the context of the classroom. Service-learning provides us an opportunity to build classes that both educate students in the concepts of our disciplines, and connect students with the community through meaningful engagement, however the use of service-learning can be more complicated for graduate faculty and students for a variety of reasons. 
    This happy hour conversation provides an opportunity for faculty from all disciplines who teach graduates to learn about and talk through the benefits and challenges of using service-learning. Light appetizers and wine will be served. Participants will be able to share their experiences, ask questions and strengthen their service-learning practices. Facilitators will offer tips, consultation, stories and support for implementing successful service-learning in graduate school. These workshops are co-sponsored by the Academic Service-Learning Faculty Fellows program, Center for Center for Service and Community Engagement, and the Seattle University Youth Initiative. To RSVP and for more information, please contact Kaelen Burton at or 296-5750.
