Representatives of local agencies, organizations or interested individuals are invited to attend a Community Dialogue sponsored by the Office of Service Learning at the University of Minnesota Crookston. The dialogue will center on community needs and the types of projects that faculty may use to match their course curriculum goals to help meet those needs. The session runs from 2 - 4:30 p.m. in Bede Ballroom, Sargeant Student Center at the U of M Crookston.

Anyone with an idea that might be addressed through a course service-learning project is encouraged to attend. Service learning combines academic classroom curriculum with meaningful community service.
