Academic Service Learning

Glen Bach Recognition

Academic Service-Learning has a long history on CWU’s campus. Since its inception under Dr. McIntyre’s Spheres of Distinction, more than 80 CWU faculty has served as Faculty Fellows.

The purpose of this group is to promote academic service-learning, which at CWU is defined as “a course-based, credit-bearing educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of the course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.”

Several years ago, the Academic Service-Learning committee decided to recognize a CWU faculty member each year for his/her commitment to providing AS-L in their courses, thereby engaging CWU students in the mutually benefitting relationship with a community agency, while broadening the understanding of the course content as it relates to the real world.

This year the Academic Service-Learning Faculty Fellows is deeply honored to recognize Glen Bach for his incorporation of AS-L in the courses he teaches. Glen has consistently incorporated AS-L in his graphic design courses, most visibly the SOURCE posters each year. However, he has also had students create graphic designs for the Children of Chernobyl project, as well as Rock Against Rape effort. These are just a few of the experiences he has provided for CWU students as they work to apply their learning in the future careers.

Congratulations to Glen for his contributions to AS-L, CWU, and the community at large.
