Freshmen Day of Service
Information Coming Soon!
What's new for 2013-2014?
The Service Learning Program is now the Center for Community Engagement! The mission of the new Center for Community Engagement is to support community-engaged teaching, learning, and scholarship; build and promote community partnerships for curricular and co-curricular community engagement; host a student leadership for community engagement program; and collaborate with other campus entities to support quality community engagement experiences for students and community partners. Our scope of work now includes more direct work with students through our student leadership program and broader outreach and support to a variety of campus departments and programs that engage students with the community.
You will be hearing from us to find out more about how your department connects with the community: Courses? Symposia? Lectures? Museums? Guest speakers? Exhibits? Consultants? Research? Service?
On a very practical level, we are piloting a new database to support and facilitate community partnerships and student placements. Not only will this database streamline the paper trail for courses with a community-based learning component but will make it easier for faculty to coordinate student placements. If you are interested in previewing what this site can do, feel free to visit http://s4.csumb.edu/s4_head/daily/. You can log in : faculty; password: faculty. Our first roll-out of this system (hopefully spring 2014) will focus on curricular community engagement. We will then look to expand use to include co-curricular community engagement.
The Student Waiver for participation in off campus learning experiences (service learning, internships, field work, etc.) is now on line! If your department/program already requires a specific waiver for students, then no need to have students complete this one. This e-waiver is administered by the Center for Community Engagement. Please share this link with students. The e-waiver is net id based. https://adhayweb13.csueastbay.edu/wsapps/learning-waiver/index.php
Look out soon for improved content and more information. The site is under construction!
