Legal Studies, CASDA partner in community service project

The Legal Studies program continued its ongoing commitment to academic service learning by partnering with the Center Against Sexual and Domestic Abuse, Inc. (CASDA) in Superior, Wisconsin in a public tabling project during October 2013.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and over thirty students enrolled in LSTU 115 Law and Human Behavior class are involved in researching, designing, preparing and public tabling to raise regional awareness about domestic violence. The project was aided by the UW-Superior Center for Academic Service Learning member Katelyn Baumann.

The students have viewed films, done readings and had CASDA staff members Erica Ellenwood and Erica Leif present about the issues of domestic violence. Five members of CASDA (Kelly Burger, Erika Leif, Erica Ellenwood, Jill Hinners and Kim Marble-Follis) attended the October 17 class session to preview and critique the tri-fold displays prepared by the students.

The ongoing personal interaction by seasoned professionals in the advocacy community and the students have built critical thinking skills, knowledge, presentation skills and a commitment to promoting life long learning in the community.

The students will be tabled in two hour segments throughout the Superior region during the last two weeks of October. There a final de-briefing was in early November with CASDA staff to conclude the academic service learning project. Thank you to CASDA for their terrific work in our region on behalf of sexual violence and domestic abuse victims and to the students in LSTU 115 for their commitment to academic service learning.
