The Community and University Honors Seminar
Every spring this cross-disciplinary Honors College seminar focuses on a neighborhood near the University. Students research conditions and needs in the neighborhood, then undertake a project in partnership with residents to improve conditions there.
Duquesne’s Centers and Institutes provide community services through research projects by our student and faculty. They:
- Work to improve health, education and human services
- Help non-profit organizations and business owners develop leaders and growth
- Help teachers explore new ways to encourage learning and improve instruction
- Federal work-study student employees for agencies through the student employment division of Human Resources.
