Community - Campus Day of Service

April 5, 2014

On Saturday, April 5th, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign kicked off National Volunteer Week with an inaugural Community-Campus Day of Service. Over 60 students, faculty and staff worked with six community partners on seven projects to complete pre-construction projects, community garden spring preparation projects, flyering in the community, reorganizing classrooms at Tap in Leadership Academy, cataloging choral literature, and preparing a Bee Garden. A big thank you goes out to all who helped on April 5!

I am a student in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS).  Having received my Masters Degree in May 2008, I am now enrolled in the Certificate of Advanced Study program at the Graduate School.

I have been involved with ESLARP since my first semester at GSLIS when I took Professor Martin Wolske's course LIS451: Introduction to Networked Systems. Prior to being an ESLARP graduate assistant, I was a graduate assistant at Prairienet, a non-profit associated with the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, supporting technology projects in Champaign County, East St. Louis, and Sao Tome, West Africa.  This year, my first working directly with ESLARP, I will continue to support technology programs in East St. Louis.
