These partnerships not only improve the quality of life cross California, they significantly contribute to student learning, advance faculty research and teaching, support CSU programs and positively contibute to California communities.

The CSU continues to take bold steps to promote service learning as an educational pedagogy that prepares students for the complexities and rewards of community engagement, liefelong learning, and professional and personal success.

Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsiblity, and strengthen communities.

Students' Responsibilities

Students engaged in a service learning assignment are responsible for mitigating potential risks involved with their service learning assignment. The Student Service Learning Plan & Agreement contains "Participation Guidelines," which outline appropriate behavior expectations for service learning students while at the learning site. Students are required to sign the "participation guidelines," which serves as an informed consent, demonstrating their awareness of the potential risks and behavior expectations at the learning site.

The also serves as a risk management function by keeping a record of when students were providing service at the learning site. If an accident occurs at the learning site, and the University needs to know if a specific student was actually serving at the learning site, this can provide a quick cross-check to the learning site's sign-in sheet.
