The Office of Field Service Education at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service will facilitate two information sessions for non-profits, government agencies, businesses, foundations, or other organizations working on issues of social change that are interested in becoming a field service partner for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The information sessions will cover different types of student projects, how to apply, and provide opportunities for questions. The two sessions:
Marvel Session: This information session will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Boys, Girls, Adults Community Development Center (306 US 49, Marvell, AR 72366). To RSVP, click here.
Little Rock Session: This information session will be held on Friday, November 18, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Clinton School of Public Service, Sturgis Hall (1200 President Clinton, Little Rock, AR 72201). To RSVP, click here.
“The Clinton School relies on effective community partnerships to provide students with valuable real world experience related to their academic work,” said Christina Standerfer, Interim Director of Field Service. “Without strong community partner involvement we would be not able to offer the rich education in public service that is the hallmark of the Clinton School.”
Practicum projects are selected by the Clinton School and completed by small teams of students in order to fulfill degree requirements and gain valuable experience, while also adding tremendous value to the partner organization. Applications for practicum projects are due on March 18, 2017.
