EAU CLAIRE - Lisa A. Lunghofer, Silver Spring, Md., has been named service-learning coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, effective April 1. She will coordinate the academic experience for undergraduates at the university. Service-learning combines community service with intentional learning goals, reflection and critical analysis.

Chancellor Larry Schnack appointed Lunghofer, who previously worked with Case Western Reserve University's Project STEP-UP, a tutoring and mentoring program serving inner-city adolescents in Cleveland, Ohio. As assistant director she recruited and trained college student volunteers, taught an inter-disciplinary service-learning course, developed training manuals and materials and coordinated daily project activities. Most recently she directed the Odyssey Project, a national longitudinal study of children in residential treatment, therapeutic foster care and group homes, for the Child Welfare League of America in Washington, D.C. Other related experience included a year as associate director of residence life and student activities at Lees College, Jackson, Ky.

"Lisa Lunghofer's experiences directing service-learning in several different settings qualify her to make contributions to our service-learning efforts," said Provost Marjorie Smelstor. "We look forward to her leadership as we develop programs that merge with academia through course work and research that match the community and students' needs."

In the new position, Lunghofer will work closely with the associate and assistant deans, the director of the C.A.L.L. Program (Community Action and Lifelong Learning), and the service-learning advisory committee. She will have responsibility for developing systems and procedures to support the service-learning experience. She will analyze and clarify the roles and responsibilities of student service-learners; produce manuals and guides; and act as the point and resource person in refining service-learning applications for teaching, learning and curriculum development.

Lunghofer holds a doctorate in social welfare policy from Case Western Reserve, a master's degree in counseling psychology from Boston College and a bachelor's degree in psychology and history from Washington University. She will report to Mary Ryan Miller, associate dean of students.
