How we support faculty:
Community Partnership Assistance
The Office of Service-Learning (OSL) connects faculty to community agencies or members whose work is complementary to the content of the course. View the OSL's typical partnership process.
Course Design Consultation
OSL reviews course learning objectives, suggests ways to incorporate reflective assignments, suggests methods of assessment and grading, and offers guidance on how to meet current best practices.
Tools: OSL suggests measures of the impact of service-learning on students and community partners. OSL also maintains a bank of questions that can be included on the Student Evaluation Survey (formerly known as the TEQ).
OSL and CTE (Center for Teaching Excellence) present a variety of service-learning professional development programming each semester. These workshops allow experienced faculty to network and share with those new to service-learning. Current workshop schedule.
