Service-Learning and HIV/AIDS: Faculty Workshop set for May 19-21

University of St. Thomas faculty are invited to participate in a workshop for those who are interested in developing a service-learning component in one or more courses in cooperation with Open Arms of Minnesota or Minnesota AIDS Project.

UST is working closely with the two organizations through the university's Office for HIV/AIDS Initiatives and the Office for Service-Learning.

The workshop will provide an opportunity to explore service-learning possibilities for your course(s) in conversation with staff from these organizations. Other faculty who have worked with these organizations also will participate. The Office for Service-Learning is offering a stipend for attendance at the workshop and will pay another stipend upon successful design of your service-learning components.
