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 examples from each include the following:
Community Service—minimum of three 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—two 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.
