Service Leadership Projects

GEOG 01 Fall 2018

Creating a Public Service Announcment

This final project for Physical Geography with Professor Meezan asked students to apply what they have learned over the course of the quarter to create a Public Service Announcement (PSA) about a physical geography hazard, such as earthquakes, flooding, fires or responding to or adapting to climate change. 

Students were give free range as to the format of the PSA. Examples provided in their assignment handout included videos, animations, Story Maps, or a poster with an infographic.

Student Reflections

After sharing their projects on the web and social media, students were asked to reflect on how completing and sharing their project affected their perspective on community engagement and service leadership.


In order to spread awareness to this issue, I posted my video on Facebook and Instagram, and also sent them in my group chats with my friends. Turns out that this was just as surprising to them as it was to me the first time I heard about it in class.
