The WVU Office of Service Learning Programs has administered the W.K. Kellogg”Expanding Community Partnerships”program to foster service learning on the WVU campus since 1998. According to Jill Kriesky, director of OSLP ,”An increasing number of communities and faculty have been working together to engage WVU students, applying the skills and theories they learn in classes to”real world”projects around the state.

It is time to celebrate the success of our faculty, students and community partners.”
