Service Learning Program

The Office of Service Learning promotes excellence in professional and personal character development through experiential learning opportunities that bridge the curriculum with community service. It does this by implementing two separate programs, which are Service Learning and Volunteer Services.

1. Service Learning

Through the Office of Service Learning, students who have been awarded Federal Work Study money may be placed at a human service agency in order to earn their Federal Work Study award. The office maintains direct contact with Service Learning students throughout their term of employment, and those students are encouraged to share any comments or concerns with their agency supervisor and/or the Service Learning coordinator. This enables the office to assure the highest possible quality experience to all students.

2. Volunteer Services

A major part of the program is Volunteer Services that are offered, through which it strives to help students wanting or needing community service hours. This is done by informing students and groups of opportunities in the Indiana area, as well as assisting groups of students that are interested in fundraising for a nonprofit agency or starting a project of their own. Additionally, the office keeps ongoing relationships with nonprofit agencies to help them find volunteers when in need.
