"The Project: Renewing Michigan - One Student at a Time"

13th Annual Lily Conference of College and University Teaching

In meeting GVSU's goal of supporting service learning, an interdisciplinary team composed of students and faculty, known as The Project, was formed. Utilizing a common passion for civic engagement, the team promotes the development of marketable skill sets for students towards public service. By linking critical thinking with action learning, The Project provides a vehicle whereby students are given the opportunity to design, implement, and sustain endeavors leading to jobs within Michigan.
