Volunteer and Service Learning Center

About Us

In our office we provide opportunities for students to engage themselves in their community by volunteering. Students, faculty and staff can volunteer at events held by the VSLC or other organizations on-campus. The VSLC can also match individuals with opportunities based on their interests. Faculty receive support for service-learning partnerships and projects. The VSLC office will help  track and verify all service hours for students, faculty and staff while providing Service Transcripts.

VSLC OrgCentral is the home base to log service hours, find upcoming volunteer events, apply for service awards and learn more about services offered through the Volunteer and Service Learning Center.

Carnegie Classification

The Carnegie Foundation's Classification for Community Engagement is an elective classification, meaning that it is based on voluntary participation by institutions. The elective classification involves data collection and documentation of important aspects of institutional mission, identity and commitments and requires substantial effort invested by participating institutions. It is an institutional classification; it is not for systems of multiple campuses or for part of an individual campus.

The classification is not an award. It is an evidence-based documentation of institutional practice to be used in a process of self-assessment and quality improvement. In this way, it is similar to an accreditation process of self-study. The documentation is reviewed by a National Review Panel to determine whether the institution qualifies for recognition as a community engaged institution.
