Starting last semester at Kellogg Community College, service learning participation will be required for every student pursuing an associate degree outside of the applied sciences.
Each graduate must complete 15 hours of service learning activity in a course with a service-learning-certified faculty member or 24 hours of service learning as part of SERV 200, a course dedicated to service learning.
Kate DeGraaf, service learning manager at Kellogg Community College, said service learning offers a way for students to see how their specific talents and skills can impact the community, regardless of what subject they’re studying.
“Service learning is an avenue where students can learn more about themselves through real-life situations and reflection,” DeGraaf said. “It helps students see where they can be active agents of change in their careers and communities.”
Courses offered with a service learning endorsement for the Spring 2013 semester at Kellogg Community College include:
ART 223, ART 227, ART 230, BUAD 101, BUAD 251, BUAD 272, EDUC 200, HIST 210, HUMA 205, NURS 145, NURS 271, PARA 110, PARA 234, PARA 236, PARA 240, POSC 200, PSYC 201, PSYC 220, PSYC 250, SERV 200, SOCI 201, SOCI 202, SOCI 203, SPAN 202 and TSLS 105.
Completion of KCC’s service learning requirement will result in participating students receiving a service learning endorsement on their official college transcripts.
