Ethnic Studies

Service Learning

In Spring 2002, Ethnic Studies, Hiram Johnson High School and Healthy Start teamed up to create a mutually beneficial, collaborative partnership between a university academic department and a diverse local community. The initial project was an ethnic studies course for ninth grade high school students, which had an enrollment of over 100. The project expanded and involved Will C. Wood Middle School and Nicholas Elementary School. The project eventually grew to include a tutorial program which provided direct tutoring to over 300 students each semester and a "college bridge" program for students and parents.
