artifact description
With the goal of strengthening literacy and critical thinking on our campus as well as the general community, the Social Science Research Lab at ULM is working with community members to determine whether a downtown presence on and around the Ouachita River is feasible. The proposed institute would have three basic functions: service, education, as well as research and development. A team of interdisciplinary students is preparing a service-learning grant proposal for State Farm and another team of students is helping to define a proposal that would target college students, high school students and parents at risk for health issues.
