Off-Campus Community Partners
In 2010-2011, the Learn and Serve grant provided support to help manage service-learning partnerships to accomplish the following objectives:
- Help students achieve academic goals.
- Help students become more civically engaged.
- Encourage cross-fertilization of ideas when developing new projects and new partnerships.
- Increase the impact service projects had upon local organizations and communities.
Locating funds to continue management of service-learning partnerships beyond 2010-2011 will help maintain existing partnerships, allow for key outcomes to be promoted across organizations, and support assessment, reflection and continued growth, especially for newer, more ambitious, or more costly projects.
See SWEEP Funding for more information about how the Learn and Serve grant allowed for coordination of service projects and management of partnerships in 2010-2011.
