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
- 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
Subscribe to the MU Service Learning Listserve for updates on all campus-wide faculty
workshops, information about national service learning conferences, and deadlines
for faculty development and course designation applications. Faculty also use the
listserve to discuss issues related to SL pedagogy: what works, what doesn't, how
to negotiate the mechanics of partnerships with the community, etc.

projects relevant to the discipline, etc.
