Abstract

In order to connect university students to the community, a service learning activity was designed to allow students to improve future leadership skills by executing a project that was created to promote awareness of Earth Day and also the Fashion and Textiles Program on a university campus. Ultimately, this activity provided upper-level, undergraduate fashion design and fashion merchandising majors enrolled in a career development course with immediate experience in project management through an experiential learning project that would prepare future graduates for the workplace by developing leadership and management skills.
