Faculty Service Learning Showcase

The Service Learning Showcase which began at UIW in 2017 is now a part of UIW Research Week. A call for proposals will appear on the web page of the Graduate and Research Office.

Information that you may find helpful as you consider submitting your proposal: Service learning is part of the UIW effort for students to learn civic responsibility and to make volunteer service a life-long commitment.

While all students need to do “community service” before graduating, service learning is more than that. It is:

  1. required in a class or a program
  2. done to better understand course content
  3. done out of concern for the well-being of the community, and
  4. students are learning how to reflect, find meaning in their lives, and keep engaged for the future

Please consult the Faculty Resources page of the Ettling Center for Civic Leadership for Service and Service Learning Guidelines, Reflection Guide for Developing Service Learning, International Service Learning, Resources for Assistance and Scholarship, and other helpful things.

When writing your Faculty Self Inventory, please remember that service learning is valued and should be documented on Sedona. The directions for that are posted on BlackBoard in the Faculty Repository site with the title “Intro Service Learning Code in Sedona.”
