Service Learning Workshop Packet

Service Learning is an experiential learning opportunity with a strong reflection component that is strategically designed to advance a learning objective (may be academic or co-curricular), and where the experience itself is developed and executed in partnership with the communities served.

Funding Resource: Venture Fund, Michigan Campus Compact – faculty or academic departments may apply to receive up to $3500 to integrate service learning or community service into a course or curriculum.  For more information, click here: http://www.micampuscompact.org/venture.aspx
