Center for Service-LearningThe mission of the Center for Service-Learning at the College of Coastal Georgia is to initiate and support curricular and co-curricular activities that enhance student learning and respond to the critical needs of our community. Our mission can be achieved through the development of effective, collaborative campus/community partnerships of service and learning.
Among the Center's initial tasks are to:
- Undertake a broad assessment of community needs and meet with local community agencies to discuss partnership possibilities;
- Provide incentives, support, and training for faculty interested in the integration of service-learning into teaching and research;
- Help build community and campus awareness of service-learning and its virtues/benefits; and
- Support and assess "pilot" service-learning courses during the Spring 2011 and Fall 2011 semesters.
The College of Coastal Georgia has adopted Service-Learning as its Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for purposes of continued accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). By anchoring service-learning in the QEP, the College has committed long-term to this method of teaching, learning and community engagement. In doing so, the College is further affirming its desire to become "Georgia's College for Service-Learning."
The founding of Center for Service-Learning was made possible, in part, through a generous grant from the St. Mary's United Methodist Church Foundation.
