Puerto Rico Service Learning Trip: Reflection and Information Session
In Spring 2016, a group of Oregon State University students traveled to Puerto Rico for a service learning trip. A second trip was held in December of that year, with a focus on creating curriculum for K-12 school agriculture programs in the region.
Program organizers intended to return to Puerto Rico, but in 2017, a devastating hurricane rocked the island, destroying infrastructure and driving many out of their homes. The natural disaster shifted priorities for trip organizers, but also galvanized their desire to return and focus their work on areas that would directly benefit those living under difficult conditions in Puerto Rico.
During the last week of March of this year, 32 students from eight different OSU colleges flew to Puerto Rico for Spring Break to do a variety of projects in conjunction with Puerto Rico’s land grant university, University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez. They worked in the town of San Sebastián, which is in the northwest part of the island. That’s where the Segunda Unidad Bernaldo Mendez Jimenez school is located, and OSU representatives and Mayaguez officials worked closely with school administrators to create a service learning plan that will benefit students there.
The students who went on the service learning trip, will be presenting their projects at the MU Horizon Room on Monday, June 4, 3-4pm. There will also be a 30-minute period when attendees can hear about individual experiences, during the open poster presentation. This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff!
