Service Learning: Social Service League
Service Learning
I facilitate opportunities for students to gain professional experience and apply their growing skill sets to real design situations by employing service learning. "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."—NSLC

Through service-learning, my students—use what they learn in studio to solve real-life problems. They not only learn the practical applications of their design studies, they become actively contributing design leaders, citizens and community members through the service they perform.
 
Community Partner: Social Service League
Brand Identity Redesign and Retail Space Design
 
Special topics/senior problems course where students created a new brand identity and thrift store redesign for the Lawrence Social Service League. Students in this class worked collaboratively in teams with SSL and were from departments/majors all across campus: Graphic Design, Industrial Design, English, Philosophy and Communications. I met with Social Service and was able to create  this class with them when I participated in the Center for Service Learning’s matchmaker event in Spring of 2008. It was an event to match KU faculty with Community partners in the creation of service learning opportunities for students.
