Two Penn students have taken their coursework beyond the classroom and put a new spin on the Critical Writing Seminar in the process.

College junior Dan Eder and College sophomore Sophia Witte are making their research proposal for a new Academically Based Community Service course into an actual class starting next fall. Last year, the two worked together on a research proposal for the ABCS seminar “Urban-University Community Relations.”

Their assignment was to create a program that combines academics and community involvement. Along with one other student they presented the concept of a writing seminar course that will incorporate a community service aspect.
