Greg Mark, Director
"Community Service is and should be a vital part of a university and its relationship to the community. Service-Learning is an important community service tool for students to learn from their service and therefore in return the community benefits from better trained and committed student service providers. In short, everyone benefits from community service; the students, the university, and the community."
Julie Lopez Figueroa, Assistant Director
"For me, service learning critically bridges enables the process of turning information into knowledge. Beyond an intellectual experience, service learning orients us all towards the transformation goals promised by education. Uniting in partnership with community members, service learning incites processes of democractic prosperity and educational equity."
Greg Kim-Ju, Assistant Director
"Service-learning models to address a range of community and social issues can provide benefits not only for those people directly affected by these issues but also for those trying to tackle them.
Wayne Maeda, Community Advocate
"Community Service Learning is a continuation of a 40 year tradition of Ethnic Studies. This tradition of giving back to the community has been one of the core values of Ethnic Studies when we established it in 1969, at CSUS. Working in communities allows students to not only practice all the knowledge that one learns in an academic institution but also creates a learning opportunity for the student from communities that they serve."
James Sobredo, Faculty Affiliate
"My mother Violeta Sobredo spent her life serving the Filipino (Ilonggo) community in Guam and in a sense I am following in her footsteps. I’ve always been “active” in the “community.” Service learning in Sacramento State University is a continuation of that service to our Sacramento community."
Ann Thomas, Ethnic Studies Administrative Assistant
"Service-learning programs such as the 65th Corridor Project affords students hands-on and life teaching experiences."
