Individual engagement is a vital component of any healthy,
thriving community. At UB, we encourage our students to use their
talents to serve a community that has welcomed them for two, four,
or possibly several years! It's also a chance to learn new skills
and further professional development in their chosen field.
Throughout this new service-learning course, students serve
as mentors, tutor middle school students, and support science
teachers in classrooms in the Buffalo Public Schools.
Through this service-learning course, students build language
teaching experience either in a UB department (Linguistics, a
language department, English Language Institute, etc.), in the
Buffalo public schools, or at a public service agency
(International Institute of Buffalo, Herman Badillo Institute,
Literacy Volunteers, etc.). Open to majors and non-majors. For
further information, please contact David Fertig, Associate
Professor of Linguistics.
Information on service opportunities is available through Student Engagement. Learn more about their volunteer and community service programs including: Saturday of Service, Alternative Spring Break, StayUpUB fundraiser, and more!
