Community Service-Learning

For The Community

Do you want a set of helping hands to work on that project you never have time for? Do you have a special event or task that needs some extra help? Do you want to be involved in generating a spirit of volunteerism in the next generation? Do you want to help in the education of an Augustana student from any number of disciplines?

Community Service-Learning (CSL) can do all of this and much more. Community organizations have the opportunity to mentor an Augustana student who is enrolled in a class with a CSL component. For the community organization, this means a volunteer for approximately 20 hours over the span of a semester (there are some courses where the volunteer time is significantly more).

By participating in Community Service-Learning, students make links between theories they learn in the classroom and the real world of your organization. This is a very rich learning opportunity for the student as well as for the community organization.
