Community Engagement & Service

The Community-Service Learning Program

Spring 2016 CSLP













Through the Community Service-Learning Program (CSLP), you can earn an additional pass/fail credit linked to a course for:

  • completing an additional course assignment,
  • 40 hours of relevant service work in the community,
  • and related reflection activities.


Review the EngageNet Opportunity page or the directory of nonprofit organizations, select a relevant service site where your service will meet the organization's needs and be related to the learning objectives of your course, and then complete the online application. 

Use this helpful guide for identifying and contacting sites. 

Feel free to stop by the Center for Community Engagement & Service (MGC 273) to discuss the program.

Your pass/fail grade is based on:

  • The reflective assignment given by your professor
  • Attending orientation and reflection sessions with the Center for Community Engagement & Service to assess your experience
  • Completing 40 hours of relevant service and submitting an hours log to MGC 273 by the last day of classes

CSLP is ideal for you if:

  • you are an undergraduate student currently registered for fewer than 17 credits.
  • you are looking for ways to increase your knowledge of community issues and organizations.
  • you want to connect with the community through service.
  • you want to dive deeper into your academics through real life connections.
