Student Service Learning Handout

What is Service-Learning?

Service-learning is a credit-bearing academic experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs. The academic portion of the project comes in the form of reflection assignments, created by and assigned by your professor. Service-learning has been shown to provide students with further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.

What are the Program Requirements?

Students spend 22 hours at their site and complete reflection assignments, which relate their service work to course material and objectives.

Student Checklist:

 - Choose a site or two from the list matched with your class in the Service-Learning software and contact the Site Supervisor.

 -  Finalize placement, at which time you will print out the Community Partner Letter and Time Report/Student Evaluation Form.

 -  On your first day of service give your Site Supervisor the Community Partner letter and the Time Report/Student Evaluation Form.

 -  Upon completion of your hours return one copy of the Time Report/Student Evaluation Form to me and one to your Professor.
