From the Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement:
Experiential Learning Abroad Programs (ELAP), a division of International Studies Abroad (ISA) is pleased to announce new internship and service learning placements in Meknès, Morocco beginning Summer 2013. The following placements are available in Meknès:

Participating in an ELAP program offers students a first hand view into the social structures of the local community and gives them the opportunity to contribute to community development. These projects facilitate understanding of the local culture by recognizing the challenges faced by various communities and making a positive impact while abroad.

A Look Back at UC in 2012 - A Message from President Ono

Message from President Ono

As 2012 comes to a close, the University of Cincinnati can look back on the past year with a deep sense of pride. UC just keeps getting better and better, and I want to thank all of you for the hard work and tremendous support that makes our rise possible. With UC’s unique capacity to be innovative and creative, I know that the coming year promises even greater strides. Please have a safe and joyous holiday and a very Happy New Year! 

Welcome Our "New" RAPPORT Facilitator - Jojo Azevedo!

Over the last several years, we tried many staff structures to support and sustain the growth of RAPP's programming through its work in intensives, RAPPORT, and outreach.  For 2012-13, we're harnessing the talent of outstanding student leaders by having three student workers - Brice Mickey and Jamieson Williams have been introduced as the first two-thirds of these.

Beginning this January, Jamieson will be transitioning to the Accelerating Racial Justice (ARJ) student worker and Jojo Azevedo will be coming on board to work with reshaping RAPPORT.

Jojo is a familiar face in RAPP!  He is a senior in Communication and just returned from a semester-long study abroad in Japan.  He is an alum of RAPP XXIV, Peer Leader with RAPP XXVI, student Facilitator with RAPP XXVII, worked on the committee that created ARJ and its curricula, served as student Facilitator for the pilot run of ARJ 2012, and has been in the Social Justice League since it began in 2010.  Not to mention his work as a recruitment leader, his commercial  and other creative videos for RAPP, his volunteering at the 25 Year Reunion, his emphasis on community building, and general work to keep the RAPP Office open and accessible have greatly benefited RAPP.

In other words, his contributions to RAPP are great and he is an ideal person to help reshape our impact through RAPPORT!  Welcome back, Jojo!
