Applied Learning and Hurricane Recovery Efforts

Paws4People - Changing Lives

Every year, UNCW students in applied learning projects have the opportunity to positively impact our community while gaining valuable skills and experience. The Assistance Dog Training Program, led by Kyria Henry, gives our students the chance to train and work with service dogs that will go on to assist disabled veterans and community members. In Spring 2014, the Assistance Dog Training Program received ETEAL support and each year the program is providing high-impact applied learning experiences for students and changing the lives of our community members.
