Past Projects

At Boise State University, there are over 40 classes and 80 to 90 community partners. One project centers around an engineering class that has a special lab assignment to design projects that can help people with disabilities in their daily life. Some products student shave made have helped people put on clothing, maneuver a camera on a wheelchair, or use the bathroom independently.

“Students enjoy having a problem to solve,” commented Jillana Finnegan, Student Support Coordinator of the Service-Learning Program. “It is something unique.”

“Assessment data every semester demonstrates that service-learning helps students learn the content, they are more motivated to solve community problems,” discussed Finnegan. “Why is service learning important? It does so much on different aspects, achieve so many goals in one effort.”
