Lycoming College students to discuss volunteer experiences with local nonprofits

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Lycoming College business management students will present details of service-learning projects in Mary Lindsay Welch Honors Hall on Friday Dec. 9, from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Each year, students who enroll in the College's Management and Organizational Behavior course pair with local nonprofit organizations to design and execute a significant community event. The service learning concept was developed by Dr. Neil Boyd, associate professor of management, to enhance student learning of management concepts and to develop practical skills required in the profession. This semester, students worked with the Lycoming County United Way, Albright Life, Lycoming County SPCA, the Little League Museum, Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity.

It offers 35 academic majors and is recognized as a Tier 1 institution by U.S. News & World Report.
