Community Liaison Services (Email us at

For faculty, maintaining successful partnerships with community agencies and monitoring your students during their service hours can be time consuming--particularly if you are working with multiple community partners for a single course. To facilitate some of these logistical tasks, MUSLP offers the following community liaison services to faculty:

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

What we don't do:

  • create service assignments for students
  • develop Service Learning courses for faculty
Ensure the long-term viability of your partnerships and stay on top of student progress by requesting community liaison services. Email us
