Service-Learning Course

To offer your course for service-learning credit you will need to submit a proposal form for the Christian Service Committee to review.

  • Proposal- Email this form to Melissa Tortal along with your syllabus and any documents explaining and assessing your reflection component(s) during the first semester prior to the school year that you plan to implement your course.  This will allow enough time to make the necessary changes in the catalog.


Student-Initiated Project

Students can choose to propose a service-learning project of their own if there are not enough opportunities for them built into their required curriculum.  Because they might ask you to mentor them on a special project, the forms are included below.  If you agree to mentor a project, you are also agreeing to assess the reflection component.  There needs to be some form of written reflection.  If a project is coordinated through the Christian Service Office, the guidelines below will be used.  Feel free to adapt them for your use.  It is the student's responsibility to submit all paperwork. 

  • Proposal- Students need to submit a hard copy of this proposal form to the Christian Service Office at least two weeks before they begin this project to allow time for the proposal to be presented and approved by the Christian Service Committee.
  • Journaling Guidelines- Students should keep a journal of their experiences regularly throughout their service project.  
  • Reflection Paper Guidelines- After the project is complete, students should write an in-depth reflection of the span of their service experience.
  • Journaling and Reflection Paper Rubric- This is how the journal and reflection paper will be assessed.  Feel free to change this according to your project.
  • Community Partner Evaluation Form- It is important to obtain feedback from the organizations we are serving so that we can improve on how we are meeting their needs.
