Presentations & Meetings About ASL & CEL Course Designation

By Appointment
Location: University Union 137

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 Jessica Arends ( to set up a time to meet. Jessica is also available to present information about course designation to instructor groups or academic departments.

CCE Roundtable Luncheons 

The CCE is hosting informal luncheons over the course of the semester to provide a venue for faculty to discuss their community based work with colleagues from across campus.
