Whether a community partner is involved with work that provides human services, cares for the environment, promotes good health, empowers students and communities, or offers a myriad of other nonprofit missions, the agency must provide students with experiences that will teach. Examples include:
The Civic and Community Engagement Office gathers information and project ideas from the community and shares these ideas with faculty members looking for service project ideas. Our faculty have partnered with more than 200 community agencies! Before every fall and spring semester, the CCE hosts two community partner meetings so that faculty can meet in-person with agency representatives who are eager to work with us on specific projects. These face-to-face conversations are most productive and lead to the best possible matches, consistent with the goals and objectives of the courses, and the agencies’ priorities.
Some faculty members have existing contacts with community organizations that may be good hosts to service-learning students. However, the scope of a project can often be larger than one community partner can handle, so make sure to discuss capacity with the organization.
Once service activities are determined with the partner(s), details of service requirements must be identified.
