Reminder to Faculty: 2023 Service-Learning Applications Due Oct. 31

The Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning (CCESL) and the Impact Learning Office (ILO) are inviting applications for service-learning designations and grants for Spring and Summer 2023 courses. 

Applications are due Monday, Oct. 31, and must include a proposal, a course syllabus, and budget details (if applicable). Complete requirements and the application are available online.

Faculty who had a course approved for Fall 2022 do not need to submit a new application if the course will not change substantially and no funds are needed. However, you do need to submit your Spring 2023 syllabus with the service-learning project listed to gulatip@uhd.edu for record-keeping. 

If you have any questions or want to discuss your ideas for a course, please reach out to Dr. Poonam Gulati, Executive Director of the Impact Learning Office, at gulatip@uhd.edu.
