If you plan to develop or already have an existing class that will be taught as a
Service-Learning class, you should consider applying for the S-designation.
There are several advantages:
It makes your classes more visible to students who are interested in service and search
for S in the course catalog.
It allows promotion of your classes along with the other Service-Learning classes
on the program's web site and through other channels.
The S-designation for Service-Learning classes will appear on students' transcripts,
especially helpful for students transferring to four-year institutions with articulation
agreements and pathways with Columbus State.
All of these further widen your potential to reach out to students who are interested
in service, but do not have a class in their discipline that offers it. It's also
a good way to attract new students to your department.
All S-designation requests are handled through the Office of Academic Affairs Service-Learning
Committee. For guidance on this process, please contact the committee co-chairs Lisa
Briggs (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mary Lewis (email@example.com).
