A number of faculty at UNK are testing the waters with the incorporation of service-learning into the curriculum of current classes. Six Service-Learning Training Institutes Service Learning Facultyhave been held at UNK, training over 60 faculty members in the steps to integrate a service component into the curriculum for his/her class/es. Faculty from all four colleges at UNK have participated in these Institutes and several faculty are implementing this pedagogy.
The UNK Office for Service-Learning is working to become a viable link between the campus and the community. Currently the Director serves to connect faculty members, interested in forming collaborative partnerships with community agencies or programs. An extensive database of agency/program needs and contact information is housed in the Office and will be made available to interested faculty members.
Faculty interested in learning more about service-learning pedagogy are encouraged to contact the Director of the Office for Service-Learning. A goal for this Office is to offer future faculty training institutes, which will allow faculty members an opportunity to learn more about this exciting method for bringing real-life experience to students.
Connecting students, with these hands-on opportunities to help meet community needs, empowers students and strengthens their understanding of academic theory while making a difference in the lives of others. Service-learning helps to promote civic engagement and which will lead to students becoming active and productive citizens in our democracy.
