World Changers BATS Project Winter 2021

The Winter 2021 BATS Project brings together a variety of students from four different disciplines - business, arts, theater, and sociology. Three teams, the Vitito Fellows, First Ward Fellows, and the Art 390 students, have come together and formed one team, the World Changers, to accomplish three primary deliverables. First is our Community Deliverable wherein the Vitito Fellows and First Ward Fellows research and apply to board positions within Saginaw City and Saginaw Township where they can affect community change. Additionally, as part of this deliverable the Vitito and First Ward Fellows hold a community focus group meeting to pose questions and facilitate discussion in developing several suggestions and or issues relating to the boards and commissions we researched. Second is our Comic Deliverable where all three teams collaborate throughout the semester to develop and print a 48-page comic book showcasing the community visions of the First Ward Fellows. Finally, our third deliverable is that of our final presentation in the SVSU Student Showcase where we present the work we have done together this semester and what we, as the World Changers, have been able to accomplish through hard work, creativity, and leadership.
