Two-credit service learning opportunity for spring by Katie Coon

This spring, there will be a 2-credit service learning opportunity in the School of Social Work that very much embodies the Wisconsin Idea: Social Work 672: Topics in Contemporary Social Welfare: Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment (Dr. Tracy Schroepfer, Instructor).

Each semester, students learn about the problems of sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking on college campuses from community and campus leaders. Using evidence-based prevention models, these students apply what they know by leading workshops for thousands of their peers to educate campus about consent, services for survivors, and prevention strategies. Alum from all majors who took this course report that they have been able to us what they learned in their professional lives!

Classes are held from 6:00pm-9:00pm on Wednesday nights throughout the semester (about every other week).  Please note that students *MUST* be able to attend the following training dates to be in the class:

Wednesday, 1/19/10 from 5:30-9:30pm

Friday, 1/21/10 from 5:30-9:30pm

Sunday, 1/23/10 from 1:00-5:00pm

Students who are interested in registering for this 2 advanced credit course or who have questions about course content will need to contact Dr. Schroepfer (tschroepfer@wisc.edu) for information on how to register for the course.
