The Student Service Learning Plan & Agreement has been developed as an online form and must be completed by all students engaged in a service learning project prior to their first day at the learning site. Students who participate in a service learning assignment without submitting a Student Service Learning Plan & Agreement are not covered under the SAFECLIP campus insurance program. Part one (1) includes areas for students to provide information about themselves, emergency contact information, identify their community learning site and site supervisor, detail course information including articulating their learning and service objectives, and define the beginning and ending dates of their service learning assignment. Part two (2) defines the participation guidelines for students engaged in a service learning assignment and are important in order to provide a positive learning experience. The guidelines acts as the student's acknowledgement of their responsibilities in completing their service learning paperwork, understanding of the potential risks associated with the service learning assignment, as well as the professional standards expected of them while at the learning site. The Student Service Learning Plan & Agreement also informs students that they are personally responsible for paying any costs related to the treatment of any injury or illness they may suffer while at the learning site. For this reason, students are encouraged to have health insurance.
Student Time Sheets document the hours that students serve at the learning site and the type(s) of activity they did while at the site. The Student Time Sheet has been developed as a PDF document that students can access from our website to enter their hours and activities. At the completion of their service hours, student must print and sign their time sheet, obtain a signature from the learning site supervisor, and return the completed document to the office of Community Engagement by the due date indicated above.
Evaluations from students and site supervisors are valuable when the office of Community Engagement is determining the ongoing nature of campus-community partnerships with particular community-based organizations. When evaluations are collected and processed, the service learning office, faculty member and risk management officer can revisit the desirability of renewing the Service Learning Campus-Community Partnership Agreement with any particular community organization. Additionally, the pre- and post-service learning evaluations act as tools for measuring students' inclination to participate in service learning classes and the likeliness of students to participate as active members in their community. Students are responsible for assuring that their Learning Site Supervisor completes a Learning Site Supervisor Evaluation of Student prior to the due date indicated above.
