Below are further examples of possible service-learning projects.
There are many other courses available each quarter; contact Alex Allyne
or April McMurry
with any project idea at your organization that might benefit from student support.
Management 413: Organizational Change.
In this course, teams of 5-7 students serve community partner organizations by creating and implementing projects (e.g., re-organization, performance analysis, etc.) that are needed for organization growth. Past project examples include student research on the feasibility of organizations expanding to new population centers, surveying of clients served, students exploring new possible revenue streams, or writing mission/vision/values or strategic planning materials. Projects can be open ended, and last over multiple quarters.
English 402: Advanced Technical and Professional Writing.
Working in small groups, students experience the processes involved in writing for an organization by working on a specific project. Sample projects include writing grants, creating employee manuals, writing web content, developing brochures/marketing materials, etc. Students gain hands-on experience and complete multiple writing projects for community partner organizations.
Communication 224: Small Group Processes.
Working in groups of 4-6, students complete projects for community organizations that force them to work collaboratively in a team environment. Projects can be very broad, from event planning to conducting research and preparing presentations for an organization or board.
Service-Learning Zine 2012
The Center for Service-Learning asked faculty, students and community leaders what service-learning means to them. Not only did they share their individual definitions, but they told us about their favorite moments, greatest challenges, unexpected outcomes and impacts of service-learning projects. Explore these stories through our digital zine
, by clicking on the cover below.
