Service Leaning in New Orleans!
29 Randolph-Macon students – and three faculty members – spent J-term assisting
with hurricane relief efforts in New Orleans. This service-learning course explored
the human conditions of poverty, race and class, as well as the religious foundations
for social responsibility and action in times of natural disasters. While in New
Orleans, the class served under the auspices of the United Methodist Committee on
Relief (UMCOR) and assisted with cleanup efforts in the greater New Orleans area.
During their two week sojourn, they stayed at Gretna United Methodist Church. These
are the students' final projects.
