This spring Cate Floate and Joe Mendonsa won "Best of College" at Boise State University's Service-Learning Student Exhibition, for their ENACT project on sign language interpreter licensure.

The exhibition showcases exemplary service-learning projects, and selects a Best of College based on the quality of the project and poster.

In Faculty Fellow Jaclyn Kettler's ENACT course "Comparative State Politics" they researched and supported an Idaho House bill requiring sign language interpreters to get a professional license. Their poster detailed their work and reflected on citizens' role in the state legislative process.


ENACT: The Educational Network for Active Civic Transformation is a new national program to engage young people in state-level legislative change. Students enrolled in courses taught by ENACT faculty fellows at colleges and universities in or near state capitals around the country are learning how to work with advocacy organizations, legislators and legislative staff members to advance policy.
