Check out the courses that are available here in LAS that have a Service-Learning component.

Service-learning courses place a different set of demands on students. In these settings, students should be mindful of several things:

  • You should be absolutely clear as to what is expected of you (as well as what is expected of the community supervisor, faculty/instructional staff member, etc). Be prepared for ambiguity, as tasks are less well-defined in a community agency than they would be in a typical classroom.
  • You should be absolutely clear as to what is expected of you (as well as what is expected of the community supervisor, faculty/instructional staff member, etc). Be prepared for ambiguity, as tasks are less well-defined in a community agency than they would be in a typical classroom.
  • Do some homework  before beginning at your service site. Familiarize yourself with the mission, history, and clientele of your agency (if applicable). This will contribute to a positive service experience.
  • Expect your service experience to push your comfort zone, challenge you in new ways that you possibly haven't experienced before, and hopefully reward you unlike any academic experience you've had to date.
  • We recommend that you have your own health insurance and coverage. If the agency does not provide workers' compensation insurance to students, then the university will provide you with workers' compensation insurance (fill out Risk-Management Form).
