As 2019 begins, the Center for Service and Learning (CSL) welcomes Suzann Lupton as interim director. Suzann is excited to take her first steps into the complex world of the center.
One of Suzann’s favorite parts of the center’s work is it’s “depth and breadth of partnerships with organizations like the Bonner Scholars program.” She believes that maintaining these relationships is vital, and she is impressed by the center’s ability to cultivate ties with the community. These ties form the backbone of the center’s work, and Suzann asserts that the staff’s ability to cultivate ongoing communication with these groups over long periods of time is excellent. “We have these historic links to organizations around the country that are engaged with community engagement and service learning for students.” Suzann hopes to assist in continuing to develop these important connections and engaging with community alongside the center’s staff.
