Being a two year institution and much like our curriculum, our experiences will focus more on the introduction (exposure to and awareness of) of community engagement. Our plan is to streamline engagement opportunities in our Exercise Science classes both curricular and co-curricularly while deepening out partnership with Feeding America West Michigan. Our approach will be to secure buy-in from full-time faculty first, and then over time, all Exercise Science faculty members will be engaged. We will focus our learning outcomes around the Institutional Learning Outcome of personal responsibility through civic engagement.
We will use our $5,000 of grant funds to:
1. Incorporate service learning into more sections.
2. Publicize our community engagement efforts.
3. Coordinate/participate in two events.
