Global Village Living-Learning Center is currently in the process of reapplying for AmeriCorps funding. If they receive the awards again, Assistant Director Lauren Caldarera will be looking for a SPEA or School of Education masters student to work alongside the undergraduate AmeriCorps members to conduct a program evaluation of their Books & Beyond program.
