Computing Sciences Students Carry Out Service Learning Projects
This fall, CIS students carried out technology interventions at local community organizations. Interventions ranged from technology training to more complex tasks, such as website development and hardware setups.
Dr. Mehruz Kamal teaches a service learning-based course in the Department of Computing Sciences. Through this course, Computer Information Systems students work with local non-profits and micro/small enterprises by assisting them with their technology needs.
Students meet with the community clients every week to provide technology/training interventions. Throughout the fieldwork, students continue to meet in class to report on the progress and relate their fieldwork activities to the theory/lessons being discussed/learned in the classroom.
This fall, CIS students worked with the following community partners:
1) Lightways Journey
2) Add Red Print, Fax, and More!
3) Calm in the Chaos Interfaith Center
4) The Western Monroe Historical Society – Morgan Manning House
5) The Greater Brockport Chamber of Commerce
6) Cameron Community Ministries
7) Brockport Merchants Association
