Service-Learning Presentations & Community Partners Fair

 The Center for Service-Learning & Community Partner staff is eager to visit your class and share our mission and resources with you and your students. We are a resource center, providing information and services that will help you and your students who are preparing to complete their service-learning requirements.

Our presentation will explain what service-learning is, its value for students, and how students can use the Center to prepare for their experiences. We will also answer questions that will help students get the most out of service-learning at UIndy.

To request a class presentation, please complete this form by January 19, 2018. 

We also want to remind you of UIndy’s upcoming Community Partners Fair, a semi-annual student recruitment event hosted by the Center for Service-Learning & Community Engagement. This fair will serve as an opportunity for students to engage with a variety of Community Partners to learn about what their agencies do and how they can become involved. We encourage you to ask your students to attend.
