Congratulations to Straight Up’s own Katherine Kasmir (here with Cal State Channel Islands President Richard Rush and Communication faculty member Vivian Henchy), who was recognized on May 6 by CSUCI‘s Center of Community Engagement today for her organization’s collaboration with students and faculty on service learning projects.

CSUCI’s Center for Community Engagement “supports and promotes high impact service learning in our communities by cultivating long-term sustainable partnerships that address societal challenges and foster engaged citizenship.”

Straight Up has been proud to be involved with the Center for several years now. We have worked with students majoring in Health Communications, Spanish, Sociology and other departments on many projects: from detailed data gathering for our Reality Parties, to awareness events, to social change campaigns, and much more.
