World Mental Health Awareness Service-Learning project

This year’s UNIV 1004 (Bridge) Service Learning project falls within the week of World Mental Health Day and, because of this, will focus on mental health awareness.

Students will have two class periods during the week of Oct. 8 to complete the project; one class period is set aside for project planning and organizing, and the second class period is set aside for implementing the service project. In years past, we have taken students off campus to participate in an hour or two of community service; however, this year, we plan to stay and serve AUM’s campus.

UNIV encourages the entire AUM campus to participate. The projects are meant to be fun and engaging and help connect students, faculty, and staff. If you have questions, please email Amy Ingram or call 334-244-3153. Or, if you need ideas, please read through the suggested articles below:
