Abstract:

Most traditional classroom experiences in political science training rarely afford students an opportunity to participate in community service-learning (assessing and addressing community needs) and/or research teams (collaborative scholarship). Our service-learning and research team used the principles of sustainability and community participation in renovating a 200-year-old campus office building at the College of Charleston, South Carolina. This approach enabled students to address real-world, public policy problems, and complemented traditional classroom experience and reading exposure by encouraging students to connect theory with practice. Through active learning, students gained skills in organization, mediation, and administration. In this case study, direct involvement solving local problems further fostered a sense of community. Since the project included community involvement, the students gained a better sense of community.

These months are .35 KWh below baseline averages when compared to the baseline data from May and June. If this trend continues the research team estimates a $1.50 savings per day attributed to sustainable technologies for the 4500 square
