Service-Learning at UVM

Jump to:  Recent SL Stories  |  CUPS Reports  

Compared to peer institutions, UVM offers more service-learning courses and enrolls a higher percentage of its student body in SL courses. Like their counterparts nationally, UVM students report higher levels of academic challenge, greater interaction with a faculty member, and higher levels of critical thinking and real world problem-solving coming out of their SL courses (UVM NSSE report, 2014). The CUPS office facilitates these courses with programs for faculty, students and community partners. More information can be found in our annual & special reports below, as well as stories from University Communications.
