Though the CSL is an office focused on student lead activities it has a limited few resources that faculty might find useful if considering service based projects in classes. I would encourage an interested faculty to start curricular planning by engaging with some of the resources below and follow them to the best practice literature they reference. It is important to note that the Civic Engagement Specialist is happy to meet to discuss these resources and any ideas you may have, the current capacity does not allow for service-learning placements of student. We can however offer advice on supporting your students in the process of placements. If you wish to engage resources more deeply however, or would like a consultation regarding the getting started with best practice literature in service-learning please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
