The Office of Serving Learning (OSL) will receive a $300,000 subgrant to develop and implement enhanced community-based learning experiences, within academic programs, for underrepresented students. The goal is to increase engagement and sense of belonging for students from underrepresented groups, and measure the impact of service-learning and engagement on their retention and persistence toward graduation. The total $2.8 million U.S. Department of Education grant from the Fund for Improvement of Postsecondary Education’s (FIPSE) First in the World Program was awarded to the University of Minnesota’s College of Education and Human Development. Six universities will benefit from the grant award.
