The Operations and Information Management (OPIM) Department here at UConn is teaming up with the university’s Service Learning to provide different involvement opportunities for students.
“Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities,” (The Carnegie Foundation).
Service Learning has two different events coming up that they would like to welcome students, faculty and staff to attend. One event will be a presentation and panel discussion on Service Learning as an Economic Driver and the other is an Innovation Night for young entrepreneurs to showcase a product utilizing social media.
More information on these events are as follows:
Tuesday, April 4th – Service Learning as an Economic Driver
Monday, April 10th – Connecticut Innovation Nights
If you wish to attend one or both of these events follow the links above to register in advance!
