This portfolio will give you the opportunity to make a real difference as you will engage in a service-learning project that will fill a real need. You will choose a client to work with for this project, and part of the evaluation of this project will come from feedback received from the client, as that will be your real audience. For the client that you choose to work with, please provide the following information:

  • Full name and title of Interviewee
  • Name of organization that the Interviewee is associated with
  • Address for the organization
  • Business phone number for the Interviewee
  • Business email address for the Interviewee
  • Also list the preferred method of contact.

I will contact the client to gather feedback related to your work with them on the project. This will not be the only factor in determining your final grade, but it will be considered in determing your grade.
