Starting in the fall 1999, SDSU s Freshman Success Programs, with The Center for Community-Based Service Learning, began coordinating 12 community service-learning projects that faculty members include in their University Seminar class during the fall semester. These projects are geared to introduce freshman students to community involvement and community-based learning. Through these projects, the CCBSL introduces first-year students and SDSU faculty to the rich learning that comes as a result of involving students in activities that address community-identified needs.

Thanks to Campus Compact for all that you have done over the years to nurture the campus service and service-learning movement. When we started at St. A's 15 years ago there was a feeling among some campuses that we were seeing higher education's latest 'flash in the pan.' Instead it was the beginning of a revolution of ideas and relationships, and you guys have been fueling us all the way."
