Learn, Serve, Change the World is a civic engagement, campus-based Title IV program; combined funding provided by federal work-study dollars and Missouri Western State University. The program replaces the former America Reads/American Counts program and centers around three elements:
Students who are eligible to receive and are awarded federal, need-based financial aid may apply to work as a Community Assistant in the program. Community Assistants provide valuable service to local non-profit agencies while earning a paycheck that can contribute to expenses they incur while attending MWSU. It also allows the students the opportunity for experiential learning while working in an area closely tied to their chosen field of study.
We know our students will gain valuable skills that are vital for their personal growth and self-discovery through developmental practices. Students are encouraged to actively participate in meaningful learning experiences within distinctive learning environments. Thereby, students will understand key concepts and incorporate them into their daily lives.
By providing students with resources and opportunities to discover new ideas and explore their passions, we challenge students to develop academic and personal goals while giving them the support to succeed.
One of Missouri Western’s core values is Service. We make every effort to build on our sense of community. This enhances the Learn Serve Change the World students’ experiences by developing and maintaining strong working relationships with students and our partners.
The best way to prepare for an interview is to research the company, review traditional and behavioral interview questions, and participate in mock interviews. You can schedule a mock interview by calling the career center.
MWSU students can also practice their interview skills at anytime with our virtual mock interview training system, Big Interview.
