Community-University Partnerships & Service Learning
How can the CUPS Office help Students?
The Office of Community-University Partnerships and
Service-Learning is one of many offices striving to create
opportunities for students to develop leadership in
Service-Learning and community service efforts.
Each semester about thirty UVM courses incorporate service-learning into their work. Browse our list of Service-Learning courses to see what interests you.
Student knowledge of Service-Learning is important to the success of service-learning courses. If you are interested in learning more about Service-Learning, contact our office or visit our Resource Library.
SL Teaching Assistant ProgramThe Service-Learning Teaching Assistant Program is designed to provide faculty and their community partners with support for service-learning
courses, and to provide UVM students with training and skills in service-learning pedagogy and college teaching. Students may earn academic credit,

The CUPS offices provides training and support for faculty, staff, students and community members who would like to participate in community-based research projects.
