Spring 2014 RSL students begin service projects

Twenty-one students began work with community partners this semester, as part of the Research Service Learning (RSL) pathway!

 

Fifteen students from Ken Rogerson’s and Nick Carnes’ The Politics of Public Policy course (PPS301) are working with the John Locke Foundation and North Carolina Voters for Clean Elections to investigate the impact of recently repealed legislation on judicial public financing. They are tasked with producing a final policy memo, group presentation, and critical reflection essay by the end of the semester.

In Clara Muschkin’s Child Policy Research class, six students are working with the Torch Club, a leadership development program run by the Salvation Army for children between the ages of 11 and 13. The students will assist in planning and executing weekly service-learning activities for the program. They will write a critical reflection essay and give a presentation on how their experiences have connected with their coursework at the end of the semester.
