The Service Scholars initiative is a comprehensive program that offers participants the opportunity to extend their civic engagement in the community, reflect upon possibilities for personal and social change, as well as develop the necessary skills to succeed in the classroom and, eventually, in the workforce.
Chemistry major Joseph Battiato has "already learned more in his short time at Stevenson than he did all of the rest of his life," he explains.
As a Service Scholar, Joseph has been volunteering for the Food Pantry on campus as well as volunteering with the Food Recovery Network. He is also the current SGA senator for Mission: I’m Home. The Mission project at Stevenson is an alternative spring break initiative that sends students to places where there is a high need for rebuilding. Joseph traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana for his past break.
In addition, Joe was the Executive Producer for TEDx StevensonU, and he was recently named Director of Philanthropy on the Student Government Executive Board.
Stevenson’s philanthropic traditions are felt throughout the school. Part of the reason he decided to come to SU was because of the time and effort given to charitable and community-based opportunities that better the school and the environment around it.
“I feel like through the service programs I am in, I have this unquenchable thirst for making the world a better place, whatever that may entail,” Joe says.
