Details about Service Opportunities


Service-Learning Week Schedule

Monday: What are the odds?

Learn about causes behind immigration as well as real-life scenarios experienced by immigrants. Stop by the table to understand different circumstances immigrants might find themselves in while trying to cross into another country.

Service Opportunity:

  • SELF-30
    9am - 12pm, Residence Hall Lobby

Tuesday: Try to Understand

We will never be able to fully understand what challenges an undocumented person goes through on a daily basis. However, we can try an exercise of empathy and reflection. Stop by the table to receive a UN stamp and learn how it might change your day.

Service Opportunity:

  • SELF-30
    9am - 12pm, Residence Hall Lobby

Wednesday: Identity

Undocumented immigrants go throughout their daily lives without any proof of identity. The fear of being asked to provide such documentation can be paralyzing. Imagine the constant state of anxiety that a person might feel in this situation. What makes up your identity? Stop by the table and check out the identity board.

Robert C. Greene Endowed Lecture in Service-Learning

11a.m. and 12p.m. in Building A Auditorium

Thursday: The Stranger

What does Jesus's command to welcome the stranger look like in a modern context? Join us tonight for a special 9:09 move night, some good food and discussion. Stop by the table to learn more about tonight's event! Also make sure to stop by chapel at 10:30am to hear guest speaker Pastor Tim Moore.
