Service Learning

The Center for Civic Engagement supports service-learning initiatives throughout the university by connecting its community partners with faculty who are interested in offering a service-learning course or project. An ideal service-learning course or project is one where course content and products fulfill a need of a community partner. The mutually beneficial approach should engage students in a meaningful learning experience relevant to course content and should provide relevant research or product outcomes for the community partner. 

The Center for Civic Engagement supports service-learning initiatives by

  • Consulting with faculty to brainstorm ideas for service-learning courses and projects;
  • Serving as a resource for faculty who are seeking ideas for project design, implementation, and assessment;
  • Connecting faculty with community partners who have needs relevant to faculty disciplines through its database;
  • Offering workshops for faulty on service-learning.
