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 campus. UT Arlington will use its grant to create videos for differing educational levels and language translations for use in combating diabetes among diverse populations. The UT Arlington Center for Community Service Learning, which is a division of Student Affairs, will guide students’ work.
