Much of the service that I do is done quietly in the context of faith and family. However, I also do extensive public service primarily centered around Schoolcraft College. For example, each Fall semester you can find me cooking hot dogs at School Daze. I also support events sponsored by PageTurners, the International Institute, and other campus programs. I do my best to attend any event in which my students are participating. Furthermore, I am the departmental rep for History. I serve on the Steering Committee for the Liberal Arts Network for Development and as Secretary for The Michigan Developmental Education Consortium (MDEC).
Since 2004, I have been sharing teaching materials on-line at Resources for Researchers. On this website I have released a variety of handouts, worksheets, and other materials under Creative Commons licenses.
My family and I are strong supporters of the Schoolcraft College Foundation. Each September, we are gold sponsors for the annual Culinary Extravaganza which is the college's largest fund raiser. We also have established the Berg Endowment and the Alexander and Rachel Liberacki Fund.
The Berg Endowment provides second chance scholarships for students whom have had a rough start in college but have now changed their lives around. Regardless of their previous academic performance, students whom have had one successful semester may apply for a scholarship. Often, these students are on academic probation. For privacy reasons, our family does not have details about the students whom are funded, but we have received notes of appreciation from many students.
Funding for the Berg Endowment has been provided not only by members of our family, but also from friends and colleagues.
Alexander and Rachel Liberacki Fund
The Alexander and Rachel Liberacki Fund provides money to support scholarships and projects that support students. In the past, we have funded a digital literacy competition as well as some of the displays at the 2016 and 2017 Multicultural Fair. We have also funded research inspired by Dr. Nick Sousanis' Unflattening.
