Numerous media outlets – including Yahoo! Finance, Reuters, Bloomberg BusinessWeek
and numerous local television stations - featured news about the Ford
Motor Company Fund awarding $225,000 in challenge grants to UT Arlington
and eight other universities to support and grow service learning on

educational levels and language translations for use in combating

Community Service Learning, which is a division of Student Affairs, will
guide students’ work.
The website for WaterWorld Magazine featured

In a newly published paper, Passy and her research team found that
watershed wetlands can serve as a natural source for the improvement of
streams in the Adirondacks that were polluted by acid rain.
