Service-Learning courses can be relationship-based, project based or immersion based. All have meaningful commitments designed throughout the semester with a local community partner organization. Community-based work will be integrated with course content and reflection.

Fall 2021 Service-Learning Courses

Please note we are engaging our community partners to identify if community-based work will be virtual, in-person or both for the Fall 2021 semester. Virtual community work modality examples include:

  • Direct Service: Tutoring through zoom or google meets with elementary school children.
  • Asynchronous: Writing pen-pal letters with students enrolled in a school in Bolivia.
  • Hybrid: Creating content for personal exchanges and monthly zooms with children attending a school for hearing impaired students.
  • Project-Based: Creating modules for youth who participate in a local community partner organization’s training programs.
