Through Service Learning

In service-learning students, under faculty guidance, work in a community on a problem of communal importance in ways that simultaneously advance the learning goals of a course and the communities ability to address the problem.

Through Community-Based Research

Geoscientists and their students serve communities through community-based research where research questions are generated in collaboration with the community.
