Make A Difference Project


Every year the students in each Learning Community volunteer in the community, either on campus or in the Mankato area.

The learning communities choose a volunteer opportunity that is of interest for the Learning Community and students “Make a Difference” in the community with their meaningful activity. 

  • Many times these projects are closely related to the topic of the Learning Community. 

Make a Difference Celebration

During spring semester all the Learning Communities come together to share/reflect on the activity they participated in during our Make a Difference Celebration.

This is a time where students get to share how and why their volunteering made a difference which makes it more meaningful for the students. Not only does this event mean something to the greater community, but it also impacts each Learning Community knowing they made a difference.
