In pursuit of the Community Service-Learning Certificate, students must complete a non-credit volunteer project. The Learning and Beyond office can assist in developing a non-credit project, or can approve a student's ongoing community-engaged project.
For a non-credit project to be approved by the Director of Learning and Beyond, a student must submit the Non-Credit CSL Project Form with a project which satisfies the following criteria.
- involve a minimum 30 hours of community-engaged activity;
- include a minimum 15 hours reflective learning component (e.g., a reflective paper or action plan; or an extensive training and mentorship component).
Students may apply to have a non-credit opportunity approved at any stage in their programs; however, approval must have been granted prior to the application deadline for convocation so students may apply for the Certificate in CSL as required by the Undergraduate Student Services Office in the Faculty of Arts.
