FAFS is pleased to announce the launch a new service-learning program that provides students with high-impact, multidisciplinary and collaborative experiences in the water-environment-food-health nexus. The program is woven into community service-learning projects that address various challenges of that nexus and strives to achieve positive, sustainable interactions with stakeholder communities through the application of student technical skills and competencies to the specific challenges presented.
Senior undergraduate teams of 3-5 members each will work closely with faculty and community organizers to develop relevant, sustainable solutions to real-world challenges. Under the direction of Dr. Mustapha Haidar, AREC Director, the program will be an important part of AUB’s Capstone curriculum and will use AREC as the program’s hub. With the help of faculty, researchers, and other experts, numerous prototypes will be developed and their outcomes tested.
Students, through experiential learning, will develop skillsets essential to a diverse array of future careers and will have the opportunity to practice the formation of sustainable solutions. Faculty will provide technical advice, supervision, and financial assistance and will be instrumental in contacting partner organizations and communities to identify interests and needs for projects.
