Support for Student-Initiated Service-Learning Courses

- CA, California
Contact Person:  

The vast majority of community-based service-learning courses on the UC Berkeley campus are coordinated by students who are already running successful community service programs in local schools and communities. In a partnership between the Cal Corps Public Service Center and the Student Learning Center, course facilitators for community service and social justice courses receive advising and training to ensure the academic quality of their program.

Much of my work in service-learning and community engagement has come as a result of the many excellent resources and materials generated by Campus Compact. When I first became the Founding Director of CSUSB's CUP [Community-University Partnership Institute], I relied almost exclusively on the resources of Campus Compact in designing, planning, and implementing our actions."
