What do the different levels mean? 

A simple way to think about it is this. Split the categories into two, community service and service-learning. Each student needs to complete activities from both categories to fulfill graduation requirements; three community service opportunities, and two service-learning.

Some example from each include the following:

Community Service - minimum of 3 hours each

  • Campus-wide community service days
  • Weekly outreach ministries go to: southern.edu/serve

  • Approved Student Organization activities (Example: Biology Club helps a local pet rescue organization called P.A.L.S)

Service-Learning- 2 experiences needed.

  • Uquest Mission Trip (These are mission trips facilitated by the Campus Ministries Department)

  • Student Initiated Project – this option allows students to tailor a project that combines knowledge learned in the classroom along with something that they enjoy doing. For example: Students from the Culinary Arts program teamed up and provided a cooking demonstration and food related activity for the Westside Community.

  • Service-Learning Classes
