Pictures, Projects & Testimonials
Each semester, the Rubenstein School and Rubenstein faculty teach between 10 and 20 service-learning courses. There is no better way to learn about student projects and experiences than through pictures they've taken, final products they present to community partners, and their reflections on the experience in their own words.
