Service-Learning Course Designation
Courses meeting certain criteria established by the Faculty Service-Learning Advisory Council may receive the Service-Learning (SL) course designation. It is important to note that the designation is reserved for those courses in which service-learning is required for all students enrolled in the course. Review the criteria before submitting a proposal.
The SL course designation provides the following benefits:
- Easier student access to service-learning courses.

- Student transcripts will reflect service-learning experiences.
- Recognition and legitimization of service-learning as a valued pedagogy.
- Encourages advance planning for service-learning courses.
- Enhanced opportunities for community partnerships.
- Increased ability to evaluate and assess service-learning.
- Support for a program that is mission-driven and a component of the college's strategic plan.
To receive the SL course designation, faculty must submit an application to be reviewed by the Service-Learning Advisory Council.
