from classroom to community!

Get engaged in your community through service-learning courses! In service-leaning classes, you not only learn course content but you also get to see firsthand how it applies in the real world. Gain practical experience and develop your resume. Build your networks and develop important connections while also working toward your degree or certificate. Get involved in issues you care about!

Examples include:

  • Promoting literacy in afterschool programs.
  • Working with a non-profit community partner or governmental group to identify potential research topics.
  • Participate in local advocacy efforts focused on important social causes.

Why Service-Learning

Service-Learning Student Project Fund

The Service-Learning Student Project Fund (SLSPF) is for students enrolled in service-learning classes and select other programs. These students may request funding up to $500 to offset costs directly related to their service-learning projects! Just submit a proposal explaining the details of your project and how it relates to your course learning objectives to apply for funding. Approved funds can be used for consumable goods only such as food, school supplies or even travel costs! To apply, fill out the proposal in SLCCSync.
