Community service is supported by students and faculty alike. While enrolled in the program, students participate in tutoring, the student government association, religious projects, and multiple fund-raising events. For example, students have raised funds and participated in the Susan B. Komen Race for a Cure and the Multiple Sclerosis Walk. Faculty frequently join students in these events.
Students have the opportunity to participate in multiple community service projects while studying in the PT program. For example, in Human Growth and Development, students actively apply course materials to develop health, wellness, and developmental screenings for children under 4 years of age and older adults over the age of 65. In the pediatric motor evaluation, students work in small groups to evaluate preschool children for appropriate gross, fine, and oral motor development. As needed, students then develop intervention strategies for the preschool teachers and parents. In the geriatric wellness project, students develop and implement a fall-risk assessment. Local health clubs and the shopping malls serve as screening sites.
