The Holocaust Studies Service-Learning Project has begun its second decade of serving the Jewish community of Wrocłow and giving Albion College students the experience of a lifetime. Recently, we have been considering how we might develop HSSLP into a program that will flourish at Albion long after we are gone.
In order to do that, however, we must be able to articulate the program's outcomes. This is where you come in. By taking this short survey, you will help us to understand how the program has affected you. We can then explain its value as we communicate with College administrators, prospective students, granting agencies, and the like.
With thanks for your time and attention,

Majors and Concentrations
The following programs of study are offered through Albion College's Center for Sustainability and the Environment.
Environmental Science Major
The 10-unit environmental science major provides broad exposure to environmental sciences at the introductory level, focused work in science at the upper level, and a set of cognates designed to show the social and humanistic context in which scientists work.
Environmental Studies Major
Students completing the environmental studies major will gain a deep understanding of the complex relationships among natural and social systems, as well as a proficiency in the analytical, rhetorical and creative skills necessary to perceive the wonders of the natural and human worlds and to solve the environmental challenges we face in the twenty-first century.
Sustainability Studies Major
Note: This major is currently under revision. Please contact Timothy Lincoln, CSE director, for further information.
This major offers an opportunity for Albion students to participate in an international, interdisciplinary program that is grounded in the social sciences and designed for students who are engaged in today’s and tomorrow’s sustainability challenges.
Environmental Science Concentration
Some environmental careers are practiced primarily in one field of science. Students interested in pursuing such careers should consider the option of a science major with an environmental science concentration. It is strongly advised that students talk with science faculty in choosing their option.
Environmental Studies Concentration
The environmental studies concentration is designed for students who have an interest in environmental issues and plan careers in related fields. The choice of courses for this concentration is more open than in the environmental science concentration, due to the varying interests and backgrounds of the students who choose this option. Participating students may pursue a major in any field. Students who complete this concentration might, for example, enter science journalism or work for environmental advocacy groups.
Submit Your Activities
Please share your reflections with us about how you have found meaning in your experiences both on and off campus. There are no right or wrong answers, but reflections are expected to be a minimum of 200 words and need to reflect depth of thought and introspection. Reflections also need to be presented in a professional manner with no grammatical errors.
Some questions you can answer in your reflection are:
- What was your mindset going into the experience and how did it change after?
- How can you apply what you learned in a professional setting?
- In what way did this experience help shape you into who you are today?
