Dr. Veronica House is Associate Faculty Director for Service-Learning and Outreach in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  As founder of the University’s Writing Initiative for Service and Engagement, she created the first service-learning Writing and Rhetoric courses for first-year students and has coordinated the Program for Writing and Rhetoric’s transformation into one of the only writing programs in the nation to have integrated service-learning throughout its lower and upper division courses.  She has worked with faculty at colleges and universities across the country to design service-learning courses and programs.  Her teaching and scholarship interests focus on food justice and sustainability initiatives.

SPOTLIGHT ON ENGAGEMENT

Here at CCMW we are tasked with “leading the evolution of the engaged campus,” but what does that mean? What better way to tell the story of engagement than by looking at an example of an engaged student. We would like to introduce you to Melissa Tilleman, a recent graduate of the University of Wyoming (UW), to help tell the story of how CCMW supports a campus in creating opportunities to produce engaged students.

Behold the power of service.
