A partnership with the Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) and health communication organizations
Partners: Food insecurity, mental health awareness, public health
The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) projects you work on in 383 are designed to be transformative – a way for you to apply what you are learning in class directly to a nonprofit partner in the Pullman community. In 383 we have adopted a commitment to community health awareness issues including food insecurity, public health, and mental health. We are partnering with multiple organizations including Food Insecurity on Campus, Pullman Regional Hospital, Whitman County Public Health, and Latah Alliance on Mental Health.
Students are assigned to one of three teams that are led by three past 383 students: Casie Lynch, Kate Thomas, and Sam Schmitke. Each group will be assigned various tasks in public relations, social media engagement, event promotions, grassroots outreach, and digital communication. Estimated service learning hours earned = 35 per student.
CCE Learning Outcomes:
- Civic Responsibility and Community Knowledge: Understanding of social, cultural, and/or environmental issues impacting community and willingness to engage with community to effect positive change
- Self-Awareness and Efficacy: Understanding and acceptance of self and others; empowerment to act; awareness of, and responsibility for, the impact of actions on others
- Academic and Career Development: Enhanced ability to apply academic concepts and/or identify career connections through community work and networks
