To have your course considered for Service Learning (SL) designation, it must meet the following criteria:
- A minimum of 10 hours in an academic semester – including work done inside and outside of class involving a service oriented or community oriented curricular activity or any activity related to the service project.
- Service learning/community outreach is embedded in the syllabus of course – there should be a learning outcome (LO) directly related to service learning in addition to other LOs of the class.
- An assessment component for each service project is required to assess the learning outcome.
- Service learning/community outreach hours are logged by students via GatorSync.
Faculty who have courses designated as SL must adhere to the criteria and requirements for designation as established by the sitting Community Engagement and Service Learning Committee.
Faculty will be given credit for teaching SL designated courses in their annual evaluations.
Students who take SL designated courses will receive SL course credit on their final transcripts.
