Service

Our staff is involved in service related to the University as many of them sit on various committees, and give time to assist other departments across campus.  Staff service is important for our department as it helps foster relationships with others on campus and with those who we support their students through our EDHE courses.

Community Involvement

Many of our staff members are actively involved with community efforts within the Lafayette-Oxford-University Community to help foster relationships with others in town. Involvement ranges in terms of hours given to support local community initiatives, to having our staff members sit on various boards (or even chair committees).  The LOU Community is ever-growing so having our staff involved in various community efforts is a great way for us to spread the word of Academic Support Programs here on campus.
