The center, located in Old Main 103, houses several resources available to the entire campus. Its centerpiece is the Student Action Office, which supports students in service-learning, community based-research, undergraduate research and creative scholarship. Also, the center will be the home to the coordinator for USD's study abroad programs, the first point of contact for National Student Exchange, and the resource for students applying for nationally competitive scholarships.
The center will also serve as a clearinghouse for information on external programs that provide other opportunities for students to travel abroad, secure competitive internships, and volunteer in a variety of capacities.�
"The creation of the center will offer students a single location to learn about the wide array of activities available to them at The U to hone their skills, develop their academic focus, and contribute to their community. We are excited to offer this resource in The U's continuing commitment to be the place for students to discover new ways to develop their skills and make themselves competitive," Engstrom said.
The center will host an open house Wednesday, Oct. 4, from noon until 2 p.m. For more information, contact 677-6338 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
