Assessing the unique needs of the community you are serving as a health professional – particularly as it relates to working with ethnically and culturally diverse communities – is a critical skill for nurses and nurse practitioners. Clemson Nursing Professors Dr. Rosanne Pruitt and Dr. Wanda Taylor present a session on how to utilize service-learning throughout the curriculum to enhance the learning experience for Nursing students. The presentation includes remarks from faculty, students and community members.

March 18: Hunnicutt Creek Restoration and Enhancement: Perspectives and Preliminary Results from a Campus Project

Assistant Professor for Environmental Engineering Scott Brame discusses how he involved students from his ENSP 2000 (Introduction to Environmental Science and Policy) class in the Hunnicutt Creek restoration project. Dr. Cal Sawyer, manager of the restoration project gives a brief overview of the project, and Dr. Brame explains the challenges of implementing a field project with the forty-eight students participating in the class. The student’s service- learning experience consisted of removing invasive plants from areas immediately adjacent to the creek, and the goal was to reinforce class lessons about ecology and community structure with this experiential activity.
