Bridge the gap through Service Learning!

Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. The College has established partnerships with community agencies for the purpose of placing Calhoun students in service learning project assignments on a semester-by-semester basis. A listing of currently participating agencies is maintained by the Dean for Student Affairs and is updated on a regular basis. The Dean for Student Affairs serves as the liaison person between the college and all community agencies. The Dean is the primary person responsible for developing and maintaining agency agreements, along with faculty participation in the Service Learning Program.

Several courses now offer service learning as an option on the course syllabus.

Should you have questions about the program, please contact Dr. Kermit Carter, Dean for Student Affairs, at (256) 306-2613.
