Laura Weaver, Purdue University North Central

Meet the 2012 Outstanding Community Service Director Award winner - Laura Weaver of Purdue University North Central.



In his nomination letter, Dr. James B. Dworkin, Chancellor, Purdue University North Central, praised Laura for her “dedication to service learning and civic engagement” going on to say that “she works diligently to foster the development and strengthen the partnerships with the communities we serve.”   Laura’s accomplishments during the first 4 years of her time at Purdue North Central speak for themselves - her work on the Carnegie Community Engagement Elective Classification, the President’s Community Service Honor Roll, the President’s Interfaith and Community Campus Challenge, and the University’s invitation to join the Talloires Network are all great honors.  But it goes deeper than that.  Of her work, Weaver says, “the transformative power of these service-learning relationships, from a small connection between myself and a newly engaged faculty member to the time-tested partnership between a faculty member and a community partner, is evident in the lives of the students we touch, and the campus and community where we work and live.”
