OLSL Announces 2013-2014 Faculty Fellow: Dr. Marianne LeGreco

Posted on Wednesday, September 11th, 2013 by Kristin Moretto under Uncategorized.

LeGrecoOLSLpicture

“We have a very unique and important resource in the Office of Leadership and Service Learning at UNCG. As part of my OLSL Fellowship, I hope to inspire current and new faculty to take advantage this Office and get engaged with their communities through service learning. Working with students and community partners has been an important part of my research, teaching, and service. My goal as a faculty fellow is to work with OLSL and the Faculty Learning Community on Service Learning to make better use of the service learning research and resources that are available to us at UNCG.

As a Communication Studies person, I often encourage people to take a moment to look at where they have been and where they are going. More specifically, my work as the OLSL faculty fellow will have me participating in some “needs talk” with current and new faculty about how the Office of Leadership and Service Learning can serve as the best possible resource for engaged faculty. Moreover, I will continue to co-organize the Faculty Learning Community on Service Learning, which is one of the most successful learning communities on campus.”
