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
