The community-based work is defined in response to a need or aspiration presented by one or more partnering community organizations and for which core issues of impact, sustainability and reciprocity have been addressed. The course also includes preparation of students for service, engages the students in reflection on the service and assesses the student learning as well as the community impact.

  • SL (Service Learning Praxis) where the course connects the classroom and the larger world through service learning with a substantial civic engagement orientation.

 

  • DP (Diverse Publics) where the course conducts an in-depth exploration of different constituencies in contemporary American society; specifically public schools.


Service-Learning at UMass Amherst is supported by UMass Civic Engagement and Service-Learning (CESL).  UMass CESL promotes learning for life-long, engaged citizenship, partnering with communities on and off campus to work collectively for a more just society.
