Beginning in Spring 2014, students who are interested in becoming Service Learning Leaders can take a 1-credit course that combines the theory and practice in service learning and community-based research. Students in the course will simultaneously be assigned to a faculty member who is teaching a course that involves a service learning and/or community-based research component. SLLs assist the professor by helping the students with their service learning projects, including the activity itself and the reflective and academic activities related to it. SLLs get paid for their service-learning work, $8.50/hour up to 40 hours.
Service Learning Leaders should possess the following qualities:
- leadership desire and ability
- concern and compassion for others, especially those in disadvantaged circumstances
- excellent communicator
- responsible and reliable
- academically strong
