CSW Arts & Athletics


Built on the College of Social Work’s commitment to community service, CSW Arts & Athletics is an initiative created by Dean Emeritus Nick Mazza designed to combine arts and athletics as vehicles to teach and enhance leadership development, academic achievement, socialization and other life skills for local youth, including those with limited social and economic opportunity.


A service-learning component involves FSU students from various disciplines participating as mentors, while also gaining additional leadership and community service experience. This program is directed by Assistant Professor Dr. Lisa Schelbe in the College of Social Work and in 2016 will mark the fifth annual camp for middle school students.
