A Real Story: How to Create a Food and Environmental Justice Service Learning Interdisciplinary Plan of Study
Date & Time
Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
During this session, presenters will explain, step by step, how they developed the Sustainable Community Food Systems Minor at the University of Connecticut--the challenges, the successes, the student and community benefits, how they administer it, how they leverage it for grants and collaborations, and where they’re going in the future. Participants will identify the benefits and outcomes of having a service-learning minor at the intersection of food and the environment, develop a vision of similar programming at their own institution or get new ideas for existing programs, and learn about how community collaborations and grants play a major part in the development of this newly established minor program. - Julia Yakovich, Director of Service-Learning and Engagement Initiatives, University of Connecticut
