Teaching with Service Learning 

Below are a few resources for faculty who are currently/planning to teach with Service Learning.

Faculty Roadmap (pdf)
This Roadmap is a "quick guide" to understanding and beginning with Service Learning.

Faculty Manual
In both a downloadable and online version, the Faculty Manual provides comprehensive and detailed information on teaching with Service Learning as well as participating in the LCCC Service Learning Program.

Community Partner Directory
View a listing of established community organizations who currently partner with the LCCC Service Learning program. (Note: Though LCCC encourages projects that address our main partner needs listed here, LCCC Service Learning projects can also be formed through Faculty/Student identified partners.)

Community Partner Needs/Wish lists
About 1 month before the Fall & Spring semesters begin, the established Community Partners submit their "Wish lists" for potential Service Learning projects. These Wish lists are posted next to the organization's name on the Community Partner Directory. Faculty members can view these needs and contact the partners if they see an initial connection.

Student Webpage
The Student Service Learning page provides resources for both students taking Service Learning courses and Faculty teaching them. Below are three highlights:  

Advanced Topics
