Local Service Learning Training
Our goal is to unite, educate, and enlighten a cross-section of students and faculty from service-oriented clubs and classes throughout the college by providing two different opportunities to learn about and engage in service to community non-profits. These opportunities will be advertised through SGA and the Community Involvement and Service-Learning (CISL) Alliance to all clubs and organizations across campus, as well as to faculty members who offer Service Learning opportunities in their classes.
