Support for Students

How does the Service-Learning Department Support Students?

  • Provides opportunities that complement curriculum taught in the classroom.
  • Makes them aware of opportunities for transportation to sites (Carpooling, ELCE Mini-Bus). 
  • Finds alternative sites for those students who are unable to commit to the site in which they are originally signed to.
  • Monitors hours throughout the semester.
  • Communicates with community partners when there is difficulty starting a site placement. 
  • Communicates with community partners when there are student concerns and successes throughout the semester.
  • Facilitates reflection sessions in and outside of class.
  • Provides expectations regarding the fundamental aspects of service-learning (through initial presentations and on-going communication throughout the semester).
  • Arranges for community partner interviews on-campus and attendance of on-campus reflection sessions.
