Service Learning

Because a WIS goal is to prepare students for a life of active, responsible, community engagement, service is a key part of the curriculum. Students engage in numerous and wide-ranging endeavors from fundraising and environmental improvement to involvement with local and international service agencies worldwide. Through these efforts, students gain insight into the problems faced by others and the satisfaction of knowing they may have made a difference.
