Among the projects planned for spring 2013: Working with the ARC of Carroll County; Looking at life through the eyes of a refugee; Helping Baltimore city’s homeless population; Even implementing health care teachings a la Patch Adams (see above).

As Kayla Keelan, graduate coordinator for service in UMBC’s Office of Student Life, explains, “This program, built around service, critical thinking and reflection, empowers students to create change and to engage and help educate their peers.  Participants find the experience inspiring, educational and fun!”
