Faculty and Staff Resources
The Feinstein Civic Engagement Program staff is able to assist URI faculty and staff in a variety of capacities related to service, service learning, and civic engagement.
Our staff is more than willing to:
- assist in the development of a course curriculum service learning component;
- give presentations to classes or student groups on issues related to service, volunteerism, civic engagement, community awareness, and careers for the common good;
- help connect interested faculty or staff with community partners;
- assist in locating service learning opportunities for classes or individual students;
- help plan a one-time service project for a class or group.
Service Learning Courses: The Feinstein Civic Engagement Program recognizes the following courses as having a service learning component. Service learning is an alternative way of both teaching and learning about concepts or theories. The service work is profoundly connected to and enhanced by the specific course of study. Depending on the instructor, the service learning component may be an optional or required part of the course content.
