Making a Difference
Service-Learning is the formal integration of community service into student instruction. Service-learning connects students with the community in partnerships that provide effective and far-reaching assistance to those in need.
Matt Bourke is making a name for himself on the Mizzou campus. He has also extended his reach beyond campus, volunteering with the non-profit organization Worley Street Roundtable, where he is the marketing intern, meaning his new responsibility is to make a name for Worley Street Roundtable.
The MU Office of Service-Learning hosted a Missouri Government Roundtable with a panel of six Missouri legislators—Sen. Caleb Rowden, Rep. Cheri Toalson Reisch, Rep. Kip Kendrick, Rep. Martha Stevens, Rep. Chuck Bayse and Rep. Sarah Walsh—to allow students to become civically engaged.
Through the MU Office of Service-Learning, Global Service students cross boarders and oceans to serve around the world. One of the service locations is in the community of Cape Coast, Ghana.
