Community Engagement

Contact Your College SOLAR Coordinator to Identify Your Course as Community-based (Service) Learning

Are you teaching a course with a Service Learning component this academic year?

Please follow the steps below before contacting your College SOLAR Coordinator to request your course be appropriately tagged as Community-based (Service) Learning.

1. As part of a spring pilot, we are asking our community-based (service) learning faculty to complete the online CSU Community-Engaged Learning Tool form (you must first be logged into S4 to access this form). In addition, there is a 5-minute video which explains the process in detail. 

While this is a pilot, we expect to implement this fully next academic year.

2. In order for your students to have access to your course in the (S4) Service Learning Database and submit the required risk management forms, your course must first be identified and tagged as Community-based (Service) Learning in SOLAR; CSLI with value R along with the corresponding class note.  

Please provide your College SOLAR Coordinator the following course information:

  • Term:
  • Instructors Name:
  • Subject/Number & Section (ex. KIN 478 Sec 2):
  • 5 Digit Class Number (ex. 13527) :
