The APPLES Service-Learning program is hosting a series of brown-bag lunches during the 2012-13 academic year to discuss successful models and practices of service-learning courses. Faculty, course instructors and community partners are invited to hear perspectives from within the field and network with service-learning colleagues.

Faculty and instructors new to service-learning as well as those with experience are encouraged to attend. There is no cost for UNC participants, however, space is limited.
GO! Global Orientation on Culture and Ethics
The Carolina Center for Public Service, along with the Campus Y and the Center for Global Initiatives, sponsor UNC’s annual GO! Global Orientation on Culture and Ethics. The GO! Initiative is designed to help students evaluate expectations, anticipate potential cultural and ethical challenges, prepare for engagement in communities and develop intercultural competencies. In addition, GO! provides an avenue for students to network and interact with others traveling to similar areas of the world. Upon their return, students will have the opportunity to get together at a peer gathering to discuss their experiences as well as strategies for readjustment and remaining connected to important issues and populations they engaged with abroad.
