Public service independent studies are educational experiences based upon a collaborative partnership between the university and the community. In their independent study program, students must apply academic knowledge and critical thinking skills to meet genuine community needs. For example, community based research projects are excellent candidates for public service credit. Students will be expected to provide their community partner with tangible products of work that benefits their partner organization. Semester-long volunteer assignments will not be approved for public service credit.
