Graduation Requirements Guide
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 activities, and two service-learning experiences.
Some examples from each include the following:
Community Service—three activities, minimum of three hours each
Campus-wide MLK service day
Weekly outreach ministries—go to: southern.edu/serve
Approved Student Organization activities
Service-Learning—two experiences needed
Service-Learning Classes (SERV2)
Southern mission trips
Student Initiated Projects—this option allows students to tailor a project that combines knowledge learned in the classroom along with something that they enjoy doing. Must be pre-approved by the Christian Service Program Director.
