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.

As always, we are such fans of Campus Compact (both national and state chapters). Without your assistance, we could not have achieved many of the milestones we have enjoyed over the past two years. Among many other developments, these milestones include hiring a full-time Service-Learning Coordinator; forming a University-wide advisory committee that includes representatives from each school and from the community; and creating a course development series for faculty and their community partners."
