Preparing a Civic-Minded Graduate with Real-Life, Hands-On Learning ...
Service learning combines conventional academic instruction with participation in direct, meaningful community service. More than a volunteering opportunity, service learning furthers educational goals while promoting a sense of civic responsibility and community commitment. From focused instruction and concept discussions with classmates to practical, real-world application and after-the-fact reflection and assessment, the learning process becomes a much richer and more well-rounded experience.

UT ARLINGTON CENTER FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE LEARNING WINS FORD GRANT
UT Arlington wins Ford challenge for diabetes project
UT Arlington students from multiple academic disciplines will combine efforts to help educate lower-income, diverse community groups about diabetes prevention and control through a new, $25,000 grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund.
The award supports university efforts to address an urgent community need through a service-learning project.
“We are honored to receive this award,” says Frank Lamas, vice president for Student Affairs. “This is an opportunity for our students to use the knowledge and skills they are developing at UT Arlington to improve the lives of those in our community who are living with diabetes or at risk for developing the disease.” The Center for Community Service Learning will guide students’ work.
Through the Ford grant, students will create educational videos in Spanish and other languages for public health outreach purposes. Students from art, business, communication, education, engineering, film, nursing, and urban affairs will work with Mission Arlington to reach at-risk groups.
