This year's Service-Learning Day was dedicated to the late Dr. Jim Miller.
"Uncle Kimo" made a lasting impact on- & off-campus through his tireless commitment to our communities.
|(above right) Uncle Kimo never sought recognition, but he was a star to many, behind-the-scenes. Serving on advisory committees and non-profit boards, he engaged others in service and performed countless hours of direct service himself. He was always volunteering for something, and coming up with new ways to fulfill community needs.|
Service-Learning Day 2011 Highlights Students' Connections Between Service and the Classroom
|Students, teachers, and our community partners share their experiences and opportunities through service-learning.|
|Project SHINE students help elder immigrants learn the English and civic skills necessary for becoming citizens.||The Hogan program runs successful "Hiring the Homeless" workshops, and the Chaminade Greenswords draw on their MBA skills to promote sustainability.|
|Special guests from public schools attend S-L Day as part of a mentoring project with our Criminal Justice Department. CFES, "College for Every Student," facilitates this partnership.||Professor Rusty Kent's COM 325/425 "Photography for Social Change" classes implement their service-learning projects at Palolo Elementary.
