As programs and the number of service learning courses grow within the Center for Public Service, more coordination support is needed for participants, including faculty members, students, and community partner organizations. The Service Learning Assistant (SLA) program provides paid student positions within the Center that allows students to provide assistance to the Senior Program Coordinators. This position promotes public service leadership and partnership between students and faculty in a new and innovative opportunity. The SLA program aims to recruit, train, and supervise students who will assist faculty members with the coordination of service-learning projects.
The SLA work study program facilitates a culture of engagement. In doing so, the SLA program will meet the five following goals:
We are continually looking to establish partnerships with new departments and faculty members who might be interested in having an SLA assist their course in the future. Please see information on the Faculty Info page.
