Centers with Examples:                                                 

Boston College Volunteer and Service Learning Center  encourages students to become involved in service in many ways included service they sponsor or campus organizations sponsor; in local organizations seeking assistance; in service learning classes in various disciplines; in service/immersion trips nationally and internationally;  in advocacy for social change; and in post graduate volunteer programs.  

Calvin College Service-Learning Center in Grand Rapids, MI, describes itself: “Serving to learn, learning to serve. Our mission is to engage and equip Calvin College students, faculty, staff, community partners, alumni and other friends of the college in and for the pursuit of God’s shalom in our learning together, primarily through community-based service-learning, social justice activity and civic participation in Grand Rapids and other partner communities.”

DePaul University Steans Center develops mutually beneficial relationships with community organizations to engage DePaul students in educational opportunities grounded in Vincentian values of respect for human dignity and the quest for social justice.   

UC Berkeley Examples. In 1989 at UC Berkeley the faculty, who were socially conscious, adapted one required course for all undergraduate students which has continued and expanded, American Cultures (AC)  It is the only course that all majors must take. “Courses meeting the AC requirement can be found in more than forty departments and programs . . . . .  the requirement offers an exciting intellectual environment centered on the study of race, ethnicity and culture of the United States. AC courses offer students opportunities to be part of research-led, highly accomplished teaching environments, grappling with the complexity of American Culture.”  The AC Center “welcomes opportunities to collaborate with campus academic partners, student based organizations and community partners. Such opportunities include the development of engaged scholarship programs.”

The McCarthy Center provides a forum for education, service and research in public policy-making and programs for the common good.
