Cooperative Education/Internships is a unique program of educational enrichment that combines classroom instruction with related work experience gained through periods of on-campus study and off-campus employment. It is designed to enhance the student's self-realization by supplementing academic study with structured work experiences in industry, education, social services, or government.
The Du Bois Scholars Program provides a stimulating environment where young scholars who have shown academic promise can flourish. Du Bois Scholars participate in special seminars and off-campus opportunities that are designed to challenge their intellectual curiosity, enhance their cultural understanding, and develop their leadership capabilities. In addition to maintaining a commitment to their academic development, members of the program are expected to provide leadership and service to the College and local community.
For new students, the admissions application serves as their application to the Du Bois Scholars Program. Students already enrolled in the College may apply by completing scholarship applications distributed by the Dean of Students' office.
The International Studies Program advises students on opportunities for study abroad and assists them in finding scholarship support for study abroad. Recently, LeMoyne-Owen students have had the opportunity to study in these countries: Israel, Great Britain, France, Spain, Japan, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.
The Service-Learning Program provides many structured, community-based service opportunities for students. The program also provides support for faculty, through workshops and as a resource center for various syllabi, reading materials, and assessment tools. The Program functions as a conductor for the creation of internships and other experiential learning opportunities that engage learning with service activities. Through the Program, College students can receive up to 12 hours for participating as a volunteer in Service-Learning 398A. One-Plus Credit, 398B, a component of the program, is offered so students in a structured course can participate in a service opportunity and receive extra credit for the course taken. By combining volunteer services with reflective reading and writing assignments, the student can appreciate the learning experience and view service to the community as a significant part of life.
