Service-Learning Designation Applications

Service-Learning at UNCP is defined as a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service into the course curriculum.  The course must incorporate service that enhances the learning objectives and helps meet a need in the community while employing methods of structured reflection. Each semester faculty must apply for a Service-Learning Fall or Spring Semester Designation. Applications are then approved through the Service-Learning Advisory Committee for official designation through the Office for Community and Civic Engagement.

Service-Learning Student Fellowship Program

Service-Learning Student Fellows work with faculty members who designate service-learning courses, helping to coordinate the service-learning components of these courses through servant leadership methods. The Service-Learning Student Fellowship program awards a maximum of ten fellowships of up to $1,250 each year for service-learning projects that are responsive to community priorities and have an academic connection. Returning, full-time undergraduate and graduate students at UNC-Pembroke may apply. Student Fellowships run for the entire academic year, in which faculty commit to service-learning designation for the fall and spring semester within the academic year.
