Center for service and Learning
CSL engages students, faculty, staff and community members in educationally meaningful service to promote learning and development, advance best practice and research, achieve community goals through partnerships, and further the civic engagement mission of IUPUI.
The CSL has four divisions:
THE OFFICE OF SERVICE LEARNING
Assists faculty in the design and implementation of service learning classes and involves students in organized community service activities as a part of an integrated aspect of IUPUI courses
THE OFFICE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE
Coordinates programs to promote and recognize the involvement of IUPUI students, faculty, and staff in the local community through community service events.
THE OFFICE OF NEIGHBORHOOD PARTNERSHIPS
Collaborates with community organizations and other campus units to build long-term partnerships between IUPUI and its surrounding neighborhoods
THE OFFICE OF COMMUNITY WORK-STUDY
Coordinates tutoring programs that train and place IUPUI work-study students in area schools and community centers to assist pre-school through sixth grade youth in reading and math and also places IUPUI work-study students in community service positions at government and nonprofit organizations and agencies.
CSL also coordinates the Sam H. Jones Community Service Scholarship Program that recognizes students for previous service contributions to their high schools, campus, or community.
