The Service-Learning Initiative is geared toward uplifting community interests by equipping faculty, staff, and students to create and maintain meaningful and reciprocal service-learning partnerships. We are in the process of expanding our existing set of resources to help current and potential community partners navigate the process of partnering with UT in service-learning. Among these resources is the Community Partners Guide to Service-Learning, which combines best practices with strategies to strengthen the service-learning experience and avoid pitfalls.
If you are interested in becoming a community partner through partnering with a faculty member teaching a service-learning class, we invite you to contact us by emailing Kelly Ellenburg (firstname.lastname@example.org) or calling 865) 974-9577. We will follow up with you within a week to discuss the process for becoming a service-learning community partner.
Thank you for your interest in extending service-learning opportunities with your organization to our faculty and students.
