Spanish Language Easter Program Offered
Professor Violeta Donovan, University of the Virgin Islands modern language coordinator, has produced and will host a Spanish-language Easter program on two local radio stations this weekend. "Melodías de Semana Santa" airs from 3 to 4 p.m. Friday on WSTA AM1300 and from 3 to 4 p.m. Saturday on WGOD FM98 and AM1090.
Service Learning Workshops Offered
UVI will host two nationally known leaders in the service learning and civic engagement field in a series of free workshops from April 3 through April 5.
Sessions are planned on the St. Croix and St. Thomas campuses. Faculty, students and representatives from community service agencies and non-profit organizations are encouraged to participate.
Presenting the workshops will be Lyvier Conss, executive director of Compact, a funding agency committed to engaging college students with community service, and Roger Henry, a service learning trainer with extensive experience in college-community involvement.
UVI's goal in sponsoring the workshops is to enhance the ways that the university addresses social issues, develops good citizenship, and provides meaningful learning opportunities for its students.
With nearly 30 years of experience in service learning programs, Henry is an authority on how universities can partner with community service and nonprofit agencies. Under his leadership, Brevard Community College has become a national model for service learning and community involvement innovation. He has engaged thousands of students and hundreds of agencies.
