Welcome Service-Learning Faculty

dsc_0148Welcome Service-Learning (S-L) Faculty! This resource website was designed to complement the information available on the general Center of Community Service website specifically for current and active faculty looking to get the most out of their service-learning partnership with Northeastern.

To access all the resources this site offers, utilize the menu at the top of this page.

Our hope is that this website will help you responsibly facilitate a course and partnership that responsibly considers the multiple stakeholders and components of teaching a service-learning course. We are constantly making additions to this site in hopes that the information provided here is relevant and helpful.  We encourage you to explore the different components of this site, but to start we have highlighted the most recent and relevant resources for a Fall 2020 course.

    • Fall 2020 Service-Learning Course Resources, Public Google Folder– This google folder hosts a series of resources specifically for active Fall 2020 Faculty Members. Including one-pagers, toolkits, and course partnership information, this folder should be saved and utilized throughout the semester.
    • Faculty Communication Timeline – This resource is an  overview of the various communications (and when) you can expect to receive from the Service-Learning Program in relation to your service-learning course each semester. The majority of our communication is done via email in order to reach everyone in a timely manner.
    • Self-Guided On-boarding ModuleThe purpose of this module is to inform faculty of how they can partner with and become a part of the Service-Learning Program at Northeastern, as well as provide a one-stop shop to explore our program’s resources, philosophies, and processes. We highly recommend faculty both new and experienced take a look through it. 
    • Working with your S-LTA: A Toolkit for Faculty – This summer we build out a series of resources and materials for faculty to be more transparent and communicative about the goals and expectations of the S-LTA program, as well as to help faculty and S-LTAs make the most of their professional relationships. Included in the toolkit is the new Faculty & S-LTA Collaboration Agreement which we’re asking all faculty/S-LTA pairs to complete and submit by the second week of the semester.
