Service Learning Roles

 For a service learning program to be successful the following roles are necessary:

FACULTY: 

Consider your course learning objectives. What objectives could be met through community involvement rather than a traditional assignment? Is there a research topic where real-life experiences would enhance the opportunity? You may have your own ideas for potential community partners or you can meet with other faculty and service learning staff to brainstorm.
