The University has recently begun the process of designating Academic Service-Learning and Community-Engaged Learning Courses in the BANNER system. However, in order for courses to be designated, faculty must fill out an application form. Information submitted through the application form will be reviewed by a committee of faculty members who will provide suggestions and recommendations (if necessary) on how to ensure the course passes the designation process. If departments and/or individual faculty members would like someone to walk them through the application process, please contact Allison Alden, CCE Director, or Christie Zwahlen, Assistant Director to set up a time to meet.
Location: Library South Ground 548
