Spring 2017 - AIS 3813: Team Leadership in Agricultural & Life Sciences
Instructor: : Dr. Laura Greenhaw
Academic Department: School of Human Sciences
Project Description: Project Description: Since the spring of 2015, Dr. Greenhaw’s AIS 3813 Team Leadership class has partnered with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation to raise awareness of the foundation and its mission. Catch-A-Dream was founded in 2000 to provide outdoor adventure experiences to children with life-threatening illnesses. AIS 3813 places emphasis on self-assessment, team-building skills, and experiential activities in leadership. The partnership with Catch-A-Dream has allowed students to get hands-on experience working with a local organization to plan and promote events. In spring 2017, students planned and held “REELing for Catch-A-Dream”, a movie night where all proceeds were donated to the non-profit. Both the staff and students enjoy working together (as evidenced by the multi-year partnership) and hope to continue to grow this unique community-university collaboration.
