UCSL Proposals

The University Core Service-Learning (UCSL) designation indicates that a course meets the University’s Core Curriculum criteria and will fulfill students’ service-learning graduation requirements. The UCSL designation can correspond with any course level (100 through 400/500).

The UCSL designation presumes that a course utilizes a methodology that combines academic instruction, meaningful service, and critical reflective thinking to promote student learning and civic responsibility.

UCSL Proposal Submission Guidance

To submit a proposal for a course to carry the UCSL designation, we encourage you to follow these steps:

UCSL Proposal Review Process

The designation subcommittee is a part of the Service-Learning Advisory Committee. It is comprised of voting faculty members with the Director of Academic Community Engagement serving as an ex officio member. 

  • Faculty members are welcomed to attend review meetings to further clarify their submission.
  • The review committee will communicate its decisions in writing to the applicant.
  • Any submissions not awarded the designation are encouraged to work with the OSL to resubmit during the next review period.
