Across disciplines and in every school and college, students are taking part in exciting community-engaged work, and helping build stronger communities in Vermont and beyond. Here you can explore several examples of service learning (SL) and civic learning (CL) courses at UVM, representing just a few of the exciting possibilities that this high-impact practice offers.

How to find community-engaged courses on UVM's Schedule of Courses (SOC)

UVM's newly updated SOC allows you to easily search for all designated Service Learning (SL) and Civic Learning (CL) courses. In the left sidebar, you'll see a dropdown menu that says "Any Service Learning" (see image below). Click on that menu to select either CL or SL courses.

Community-engaged learning at UVM take many different forms. Students doing work as part of service-learning partnerships may engage in:

  • Direct service → i.e. working with people: tutoring, mentoring, planting gardens, etc.
  • Indirect service → i.e. sorting food, measuring trees, collecting GPS data, etc.
  • Consultant-type services → i.e. producing deliverables: marketing plans, policy papers, educational campaigns, engineering designs, etc.
  • Research → i.e. data collection & analysis: interviewing staff, volunteers or clients; studying comparable organizations elsewhere; statistical analysis of existing data sets, etc.
