SLICE seeks to develop mutually beneficial partnerships between students, faculty, and community organizations through enrollment in service-learning courses, internships, and community-based outreach activities.
Founded in 2013, the mission of the Service-Learning Internship and Community Engagement Center (SLICE) within the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences (LAS) is to
- foster quality experiential learning opportunities for students,
- support faculty community-based outreach activities, and
- facilitate campus-community partnerships.
These partnerships significantly contribute to student learning, advance faculty teaching and research, support UCCS programs, and positively contribute to the Colorado Springs community.
