In 2011-12, there were 21,000 undergraduate and graduate student placements which provided more than 1.4 million hours of services with community agencies and other organizations as volunteers, within service learning classes, through federal work study, internships, clinical and field placements.
Annual wellness challenge wraps up
Over 800 staff and faculty from Consortium member institutions put on their pedometers and counted steps during October. The annual Road Bowl wellness challenge is a collaborative effort among the colleges and universities, Fallon Community Health Plan and the Consortium. Steps were tracked online and prizes will soon be awarded to the best teams. Prizes were donated by Planet Fitness-Webster Square (four annual memberships) and Beechwood Inn and Ceres (one three-course dinner for two, an overnight stay, and 10% off food for any walker who shows his/her pedometer through 11/15/12). Winners will be announced on Monday, November 5, 2012.
