This week's Morgridge Center update includes information about service-learning courses at UW-Madison and an opportunity to get involved with Aldo Leopold Nature Center.
Register for a Service-Learning Course
Bring your coursework to life by taking a service-learning course! Service-learning courses integrate community service and course learning objectives. Students get out of the classroom and into the community to volunteer in a setting that uses or applies the knowledge they are learning in class. These courses allow students to relay course information to their service program in a meaningful and memorable method. There are over 50 service-learning classes offered at UW-Madison, all tailored to different majors. Even business majors can get in on the action with courses like, Systems Thinking and Sustainable Businesses. Follow this link for a complete list of service-learning courses offered for Spring 2011.

Consider This: Aldo Leopold Nature Center
Aldo Leopold Nature Center’s mission is to provide children with hands-on experiences through nature. ALNC works to ensure that students of all ages have opportunities to appreciate and connect with nature by offering positive and constructive learning opportunities that capture children's interest and engage their senses.
While there are many opportunities available about ALNC, volunteers are needed to assist with marketing, public relations, fundraising and special events planning. Those who have or are looking to gain experience in these areas are encouraged to consider this engaging and educational opportunity.
