CPIS Graduate Student Service Learning Projects

More and more, the Center for Pacific Islands Studies is engaged with service learning. One of the goals of service learning in the Researching Oceania course (PACS 603) taught by Lola Quan Bautista is for students to gain a further understanding of the course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and a better understanding of what it means to be responsible and accountable to Pacific peoples. This semester, some of the service-learning activities ranged from writing grants for organizations that serve Pacific Islander communities to holding workshops to address language revival, poetry, and music.
