Schaffer Honored With Campus Compact's Highest Award
Juliann Schaffer mentors students in an e2e Mentoring session.
Schaffer has been designated by peers as the faculty/staff person on campus who has made the most outstanding contributions in community service-learning. This award recognizes the influence on or engagement of students in community service or service-learning through modeling, instruction, and/or special projects. Schaffer was nominated by Anne Ritz, service learning coordinator, and the Alma College Service-Learning Task Force.
Serving in the office of service-learning for the last two years, Schaffer has helped re-established Spanish service-learning courses, increased student volunteerism and work-study participation at the Alma Public Schools' Explore programs, created the e2e mentoring program, developed the monthly Community Cafe partnership, and helped coordinate alternative break trips. She promotes student engagement and civic responsibility through her coordination and promotion of numerous educational activities, and serves as a fine example of a professional dedicated to service who influences students to be involved in service-learning and volunteerism.
Schaffer was formally honored during the Tenth Annual Institute on Service-Learning "The Places We Live: Student Engagement in Diverse Communities" at the Northbank Center on the campus of the University of Michigan-Flint.
