Resources for Designing and Implementing

Faculty interested in incorporating service-learning into their courses have many resources to support their efforts.You can find service-learning resources already available on or near your campus, on the internet, or in books or journals. One of the best ways to get started is to talk with faculty who have already incorporated service-learning into their classes.

Training in Designing a Service-Learning Course

Training in designing and delivering a service-learning course may be available from two sources:
  • Your state Campus Compact office. http://www.compact.org/about/state
  • Your own campus in an office called Community Service, Community Relations, Service Learning, Community Based Learning, Community Resource Center, Civic Engagement, or Faculty Teaching Center. If it isn't obvious who does this on your campus, the above state Campus Compact contact may have a contact at your school.
