WFU students to share experiences from service at home, abroad
By Jacob McConnico
Seven Wake Forest University students will share their experiences from summer research and service-learning programs accomplished in the United States, Canada, Tanzania, Uganda, China and India during the third annual Pro Humanitate Scholars symposium at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 25 in the main lounge of Reynolda Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Students in the program, who had a broad range of experiences in locales as close as Winston-Salem and as far away as China, had their travel and project costs covered by the university's Pro Humanitate Fund for Service-Learning in Action, a $384,000 grant the university was awarded in 2001 to further develop links between community service and learning.
