The Positive Impacts of Students Leading Students in Intentional Social Action Projects
Mike Bishop, Cal Corps Public Service Center
As the public service center at UC Berkeley, Cal Corps trains and advises more than 150 student leaders who in turn engage more than 5,000 students annually in social action projects and programs. This session will focus on the Center’s approach to working with, and the impact on these student leaders. We will discuss how our staff team derived center-wide goals from distinct programmatic student learning outcomes. It is hoped participants will walk away from this session with a sense of how incorporating service projects into their own programming might lead to greater learning in critical thinking, multicultural competence, values clarification, and other areas.
J'Lissabeth Faughn brings to UC Berkeley a condensed version of one of her trainings designed to assist Student Affairs employees in understanding the needs and support for Transgender Students. Discussion topics include what and who is Transgender? What are the resources here at Cal? How does transgender awareness affect your position?
We will engage the staff present in a dialogue about sexual and relationship violence leading to developing strategies and resources for supporting students. We will share updates on the Systemwide Grant on Reducing Stalking, Dating and Domestic Violence, and Sexual Assault and Rape.
Eva Wong, Blum Center for Developing Economies
Campus technologies for instructional use are often overlooked in student services. Faculty and instructors are increasingly using online teaching forums such as bSpace as an academic portal to disseminate information; using these forums is becoming second-nature for many students. Learn how various departments at UC Berkeley are utilizing technological teaching infrastructures in non-teaching environments such as student services.
