During a recent Lakeland University Lunch & Learn session, students were introduced to the service organization Rotaract and were invited to start a chapter on LU’s campus.
Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored organization for men and women between the ages of 18 and 30, with clubs (many on college and university campuses) around the world. Rotaract, like its parent organization, Rotary, is committed to service, community leadership and professional development.
The presentation was led by Deb Wente, a Lakeland University trustee and passionate advocate for the Rotary family of clubs. Michael Slawny of the Sheboygan Rotary Club and Sheboygan North High School senior Isabella Buerger (who leads her school’s Rotary-sponsored Interact Club) also spoke.
Rotaract provides an opportunity for its members to exchange ideas with community leaders, develop leadership and professional skills and have fun through service.
Lakeland students interested in helping start or join a Rotaract chapter on LU’s campus should contact Gina Covelli, Lakeland’s community relations manager, at .
Lakeland’s Lunch & Learn initiative is a regular series that offers students educational sessions about things that will help them succeed in class, land internships and launch successful careers.
The next LU Lunch & Learn, scheduled for Thursday, March 16, focuses on graduate school options for Lakeland students. It will feature Jessica Kalmar, Lakeland assistant professor of psychology.
