  • Global Awareness Students Get Ready for Spring Planting Service Project

    May 19, 2011

    Students in the Global AwarenessProgram (GAP) participated in a service project at the Danny Woo Gardens on May 6.  The two-year program for juniors and seniors in any major adds a global component to their academic studies.

    “This service project helps students understand the cultural and social dynamics of the international district just down the road from Seattle University.” said Professor TomTaylor, GAP director.  “We chose Danny Woo Gardens because it serves aging Asian immigrant communities in our neighborhood, and it’s nice to get outside and get dirty after the long winter.”

    Although originally available only to students in the College of Arts and Sciences, GAP has expanded to include students of any major in any college at Seattle University.

    “With the tremendous interest in global health, international business, and multinational collaboration in science and engineering, it became clear that we needed to open up this program to all students,” Taylor said.
