Submit Partnership Idea

For a partnership to be considered service-learning, it must:

  • address a community-identified need;
  • promote the common good; and
  • have mutual benefits for campus and community partners

Service-learning activities should advance student learning goals, thus the service opportunity must be appropriate and meaningful within a course context and the actual work associated with the service must relate directly to course content.

The form below is an opportunity to share your ideas for partnership. If a faculty member is available to form a service-learning partnership with your organization, the information provided below will be a starting point for a collaborative discussion on a service arrangement that meets both partners’ needs.

Because service-learning activities are incorporated into a class, projects or placements will occur over the span of a semester, although many faculty and community partners continue to work together for future semesters.

CCELL cannot guarantee that a service-learning class will be available for the services requested. However, there are opportunities to get connected with other LSU service initiatives.

Propose a service-learning partnership by filling out the form below, and then push submit.
