Sophomore level core requirement service-learning course: “”Introduction to Service in Multicultural Communities”"

California State University, Monterey Bay - CA, California
President: Peter Smith
Contact Person: The CSU Monterey Bay Service Learning Institute is online at http://service.csumb.edu/

For at least three years, the Service Learning Institute will offer sections of SL 200 – Introduction to Service in Multicultural Communities, an introductory service learning course, in an effort to “”jump-start”" the development and implementation of this sophomore level core requirement.

SL 200 – Introduction to Service in Multicultural Communities (SL) prepares students to enter and exit communities sensitively and respectfully, participate in responsive service, and analyze community needs and assets in the social and institutional context of power and resources. This course directly prepares students to meet the ULR in Community Participation (CP) and provides students the opportunity to acquire skills, knowledge and abilities related to their effective completion of upper division service-learning courses and experiences. Students are introduced to the methods, guidelines, and principles of community-based learning as they integrate readings, discussions, simulations, and films, with direct community service experience.

I want to thank Washington Campus Compact for working so hard throughout our state to support and expand service learning. Just in the last three years, you've helped to mobilize over 20,000 college and university students to serve in their communities."
