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.

Through Campus Compact, we can help students learn the value of building communities. The benefit to our campus is not merely that our civic community is improved. It is that our students graduate with habits of good citizenship they will carry through life.
