The Community Service Scholars program represents a dynamic network of student leaders that reflect a wide spectrum of talent, interest, and skill. Many scholars choose to create their own path of community service by assuming positions in student organizations, as interns with community agencies, or managing philanthropic programs to raise social awareness on campus. The CSS Development Model is used to provide a common framework for their experiences and training to support all scholars as they engage in public service and take on levels of leadership responsibility beyond the traditional scope of volunteerism over the course of their four years in school.
The Community Service Scholars Program is designed to specifically encourage a public service culture on campus and increase the number of socially responsible Tulane students who are effective and passionate student leaders in their communities. In addition, CSS students are tasked with providing opportunities for their peers to engage deeply with community issues. This program also advances cooperative thinking and coordinated action among student-led initiatives on a larger scale. Staff of the Center for Public Service oversee and advise the program. However, the Tulane Service Scholars Leadership Team and several family scholar groups work together to plan activities, service projects, as well as maintain the standards for participating in the program.
In order to maintain the scholarship and to successfully complete the Service Scholar Program, Service Scholars are expected to:Maintain a GPA of at least a 2.7 (4.0 scale) every semester
