Community Service Learning

Integrating Service-Learning by Discipline

Trying to consider what service-learning options could look like in you class? Whether you're teaching Music, Mathematics, or anything else an undergrad could want, Service-Learning can be made to fit your needs! You might have your Ecology students help Salem-Keizer students build birdhouses, your Psychology students are study animal behavior through service with Dog Control, or your Rhetoric students are design outreach campaigns for local nonprofits; there are a countless ways to integrate your course with the greater community.

When designing your course, it may be useful to keep in mind that faculty teaching service-learning courses can apply for receive a Service-Learning course designation from Willamette University if their courses meet the relevant criteria. If you would like more information in regards to developing your Service-Learning course, we encourage you to take a look at our Service-Learning course resources page or contact our office at service@willamette.edu, where we would be happy to help you develop a service component for your course!
