Service Learning Resources

Service learning at UAA is defined as "a course-based, credit-bearing educational experience in which students a) participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and b) reflect on the service activity in such a way as to fain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility."

Resources for faculty in the Center for Community Engagement & Learning include Community Engaged Student Assistants to support service-learning courses, faculty, mini-grants to support community engaged projects, as well as technical assistance available from the CCEL Director and the store of supporting documents found here.
