Brown Honored for Engagement Efforts
UI Associate Professor and Huneke Faculty Research Fellow Kenneth Brown was a driving force in the creation, development and implementation of the UI's Service Learning Institute, which serves as a workshop opportunity to assist faculty in designing service-learning strategies. Brown's first-year seminar, "Community Service, Non-Profit Leadership, and Social Entrepreneurship," encourages students to complete a service-learning project and to study the relationship between business and service.
"He is an inspiration to faculty, students, and administrators, and challenges us all to constantly consider how our work can better our communities," Interim President Gary Fethke wrote in Brown's nomination letter.
