Community service learning opportunities, or volunteering, are a very important component of the American Studies Program at Willamette University and TIUA. Service-learning is a method of teaching based on the principle that community involvement is an invaluable component to a student's educational experience. A healthy collaboration between community partners, staff/faculty, and university students to tackle specific social issues in Salem through service-learning can be a mutually meaningful and mutually beneficial experience.
ASP students have many opportunities to volunteer during their year in Salem. Here are a couple of the activities they participated during the fall semester, 2016. A lot of students went to the Oregon Coast to join the SOLVE Beach Clean-Up, where they picked up trash along the coast. Other students went to the Marion-Polk Food Share Youth Farm to pick squash, clean fields, and help create a hedge row.
