Dr. Paula Qualls, Ph.D.
Professor of Religion, Dept of Religious Studies and Philosophy

Dr. Qualls presented a session on service learning titled, "Igniting the Fire" on February 9, 2011 to the PACE Conference (Pathways to Achieving Civic Engagement) at Elon University. The conference is sponsored by NC Campus Contact, an organization that promotes various civic engagement and service learning on college campuses. The presentation told the success story of a service learning course, "The Prophets," that addressed social issues of slavery, oppression, and homelessness, and the resulting student initiatives that are still in motion a year later.
