Service-Learning and Volunteer
The majority of honors students beyond the first year complete a Service-Learning or Volunteer project to fulfill the requirement. All honors first-year students will participate in a service-learning project in their FYE classes. Students in all later years may choose to go on Alternative Break Trip or participate in other pre-approved service-learning/volunteer projects. (Holding a leadership position for a student organization is not volunteering. Please use the leadership option for those projects.)
Please note that at least 25 service hours with your chosen organization are required if you wish to use service-learning to fulfill your experiential learning requirement.
Below is a list of of pre-approved off-campus and on-campus offices and organizations where students may volunteer. If you wish to volunteer at another organization not on these lists, please contact Dr. Desiderio to have your project approved before you complete the survey.
If you are interested in an alternative break trip, please visit our alternative break trips page.
