Community Liaison Services (Email us at srvlearn@marshall.edu)

For Community Organizations, maintaining successful partnerships with faculty and monitoring your student volunteers during their service hours can be time consuming--particularly if you have a small staff or are working with multiple courses during a semester. To facilitate some of these logistical tasks, MUSLP offers the following community liaison services to faculty:

  • weekly/monthly calls to verify student participation and reliability
  • site visits in order to link up potential faculty partners during their course development
  • delivery of partnership documents

What we don't do:

  • direct service projects for students on site
  • develop Service Learning activities for students

Ensure the long-term viability of yoru partnerships and stay on top of student progress by requesting community liasion services. Email Us.
