Student Initiated Projects

The Student Initiated Project is for students choosing to design their own service-learning project. The Service-Learning Program cannot be held liable or responsible for student-initiated service projects. It is imperative that the faculty member and student ensure the service project meets course learning objectives. For details on HOW to propose and complete a Student Initiated Project see this page.
