Western Washington University's Center for Service-Learning coordinates service projects throughout the year for courses in all seven colleges, from technical writing to business management to communication.

Two courses still are in need of partners for spring quarter:

  • ETEC 344: Industrial Quality Assurance is a course in which students analyze and quantify a process within an office or agency and then provide recommendations for improvement. Students can analyze a variety of activities such as registration processes (how can we streamline this process? reduce paper? minimize confusion?), event attendance (how do we best reach our intended audience for this program?) or standard procedures (what can we do to minimize staff time/resources to accomplish this task?). This course could provide campus offices with a third-party perspective on the effectiveness of their procedures.
  • KIN 435: Worksite Health Promotion is a course about developing and implementing worksite health promotion programs. Students will find a health area of interest relevant to your office and prepare materials to present/share that information with your staff. This course does not require a lot of work from the supervisor in order to provide helpful resources for your department.

Please contact April McMurry at 360-650-7520 or Alex Allyne at 360-650-7518 at the Center for Service-Learning to discuss a potential project idea.
