Staff and Faculty Community Engagement Corner
Interlibrary Loan Services librarian Beatrice Franklin teaches citizenship preparation and English to second language learners referred from the Learning Connection (Juneau’s Basic Adult Education Center) on the UAS campus. "Some of my students aspire to taking official UAS classes some day and if nothing else they identify UAS with helping them be more productive members of their community," said Franklin. "They are excited about improving their English; they like the UAS setting and the convenience of coming here as opposed to downtown. I gather that the concept of a teacher volunteering their time is not something they have experienced very much in their native countries."
