Academic Service-Learning and Research Programs
- The Community-University Partnerships and Service-Learning (CUPS) Office: Supports active, collaborative UVM-Community partnerships, high quality service-learning, and community-based scholarship.
- Service-Learning Courses link academic topics to real-world community applications. Students in these courses participate in service projects directly related to their topic of study. Suggest a class project, become a teaching assistant, or find a course.
- Community Based Research: Links community members, students, and faculty to complete projects that meet local or international community needs.
- The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR): Housed in the Honors College, the OUR offers many resources promoting mentored research, creative works, and scholarship for undergraduate students.
- The Dewey House for Civic Engagement: A residential community within which students from multiple academic disciplines make sustained and positive differences in the lives of UVM and Vermont residents through intentional actions of civic awareness and community engagement.
- The UVM Community Service Scholars Program (CSSP) partners with the Dewey House to provide a $3,000 Community Service Scholarship to eight first year students.
- Department-led initiatives in the community: These initiatives may include students in the Education department working with local school teachers to enhance K-12 curricula; the Community Development and Applied Economics department students in the public communications major working with nonprofits to enhance their PR materials. Contact the CUPS office or the department of interest for specific information.
- The Community Participatory Action Research Network (CPAR): A network of faculty, students, and community members dedicated to connecting academic research to community needs.
- The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources (RSENR) Office of Experiential Learning: Helps students build skills and experience through community-based research projects, internships, work-study, applied research with faculty, study abroad, summer employment, and career counseling.
