Resources for Current Service Learning Faculty

Throughout the year, these two entities will offer a variety of professional development opportunities for faculty, including individual meetings, interdisciplinary project planning, a faculty reflection series, new faculty group conversations, community-faculty roundtable discussions, faculty field trips into the community, workshop opportunities, and more.
