learning courses in their respective disciplines. We offer three types of workshops:

the annual fall conference on teaching and learning. All faculty are invited. (75
This session introduces faculty to the philosophy of service learning, distinguishes
service learning from internships and other forms of experiential learning, and
offers examples of service learning in a variety of disciplines.
Advanced Service Learning Course Construction
Every Fall and Spring semester. Reservations required.
This advanced session offers intensive training in converting a course in any discipline
into an SL-designated course. This workshop is strongly recommended for faculty
preparing an application for the SL course designation.

Construction workshop and submit a successful application for an SL course designation
will receive a certificate of successful workshop completion and a gift card for
