The service-learning program is here to support your community-based work in any way that we can. The program supports faculty who want to designate their classes with service-learning, helps students and faculty form community partnerships, and supports critical reflection. The goal is to engage students in high-impact curriculum in exciting ways. We also offer a number of professional development and networking opportunities for faculty but also partner with the Thayne Center for Service & Learning to coordinate student opportunities as well.
