Description

A Pilot Program to Enhance Opportunities for LAS James Scholars to participate in Honors and have a Positive Impact on our Community.

Only Community Partners Involved in this Info Night are approved for this pilot program (while there are many wonderful opportunities, this is a pilot so we are deliberately starting small).

No other Partners will be approved for this semester.

This evening, you will learn of some of the needs of our Community Partners.

If you are interested in getting involved, you will self-select your partner and contact the partner (contact information is provided later in this presentation).

You will meet with the partner and all expectations will be clearly outlined.

You will complete the “Honors Experience Form” – similar to the EHCLA (an email will be sent when the form is available for completion)

You will complete a minimum of 25 hours of service (that does not include travel time).

The Community Partner must verify the hours served.

At the end of the semester, you will submit a “reflective component” to LAS Honors explaining your impact on what you got involved with, and the impact it had on you.

If you complete all requirements and expectations, LAS Honors will waive the Honors credit requirement for the semester (as we do for Studying Abroad).

Questions about the procedural aspect should be addressed to the Assistant Director of LAS Honors, Amanda Purnell

  • Bart Bartels – focus on sustainability and impact
  • Urbana High School – focus on education, community impact, leadership
  • Morgan Johnston – focus on sustainability and impact
