Application Information | SLS2940 & 2940H

Important Update

In response to the College’s decision to offer the vast majority of courses online in the Fall 2020 term, we will only be offering the Independent Service Learning courses (SLS2940 & SLS2940H) ONLINE for the upcoming Fall term. The Service Learning office is diligently working with our Community Partners to identify remote service projects and develop an online Resource Page that will provide a listing of available projects. A separate announcement will be sent to students who apply for the course, along with their Faculty Mentors, once the Service Learning Resource Page is available.
