"Highway 82" Project

"Highway 82" Project

A leadership team from MVSU recently met with colleagues at MSU to conceptualize the makings of the "Highways 82" Project designed to bring students and faculty from both campuses together to work on service learning activities along Highway 82.  This highway connects to the campuses and provides many opportunities for faculty led teams to integrate theoretical classroom experiences with practical fieldwork in community based service.  The project is the first of its kind in Mississippi and will facilitate intellectual, cultural and personal exchanges between and among students who will present diverse disciplines in the arts, sciences and other professions.  The project is slated to be launched later this Spring.  The project is a part of an MOU that MVSU has with MSU to foster collaboration in research, teaching and service within the Delta region.
