Faculty and Staff
Service Trip Also Provides Opportunities for Engaged Learning
Six UCM students and veterans, accompanied two members of the UCM faculty and staff, spent a week this past summer with the Konnarock Trail Crew in Sugar Grove, Va., in a conservation effort with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
In addition to hiking three miles to the top of the mountain each day, the group logged nearly 300 volunteer hours hauling tools and equipment to the top of the 5,500 ft. peak, felling trees to widen the trails, transforming boulders into mountain steps, and crushing rock fill to eroded areas.
Prior to making the trip, the group engaged in six week of academic curriculum and will continue to engage students in community service activities.
"Military and veteran students often aren't engaged with the universities they attend," said Jeff Huffman, UCM's director of Military and Veterans Services. "We want to change that at UCM and connect our military-affiliated students in a way that's meaningful to them."
Those making the trip were students Michael Carle, Elizabeth Crawford, Dustin Johns, Galen Livingston, Kaitlin Lowe and Ian Powers. They were accompanied by Huffman and Chris Stockdale, chair of the UCM Department of Academic Enrichment.
Their service exemplifies UCM's culture of service and offers ongoing opportunities for engaged learning.
