Service Learning Support and Course Coordination

Along with the Faculty Seminar and various service focused workshops designed to support Tulane's faculty, the Center for Public Service employs Service Learning Course Coordinators to further assist the instructors in the process of implementation of service-learning courses.

Course coordinators meet with faculty members to discuss the public service graduation requirement, service learning, working in the New Orleans community, and resources available through the Center of Public Service. Course coordinators are an integral resource to the logistical success of quality service learning classes.

Coordinators are available to support and guide faculty in the following aspects:

  • Initial meeting to orient faculty to service learning, including discussing and brainstorming potential service projects and how service learning is integrated into the course
  • Set up an initial meeting between faculty and community partners, if desired
  • Give an in-class presentation to students about service learning requirements and expectations
  • Assist faculty and partners in setting up an on-site orientation for students before service projects commence
  • Are available throughout the semester to consult on potential challenges with the service project
  • Assist with collecting and reporting students' service hours, if applicable
