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.
