Service Learning Database

Helping students connect classroom to community

Three ways faculty can help students connect classroom to community:

Class Component - Incorporate a service learning component in your syllabus as a course requirement or offer it as an extra credit option. To do so, browse the service learning database for class component opportunities that complement your classroom activity. Then work with one of the OCC-approved community partners listed in the database to make arrangements for your students to perform the service. Be sure to have your students download and complete the Service Learning Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver Form.

SRV 1100 - Agree to serve as instructor of record for a student in your class, or one who has been in your class in the past academic year, who wishes to take the one-credit service learning course to complete an independent project with an OCC approved community organization. Click the appropriate button to view all SRV 1100 projects.

Volunteerism - Let students know that they can contact their Student Life Office at any campus for assistance in finding agencies in need of volunteers or for volunteering to assist with campus events or work directly for the Student Life Office in a number of ways
