Outstanding Service Learning Community Partner Award

None of our volunteerism would happen without wonderful community partners who know our students and programs, think creatively to best serve the needs and of their clients and our students, and spend many hours preparing for volunteers. The Service Learning office appreciates the many collaborations we have and celebrates one partnership each year with the Outstanding Service Learning Community Partner Award.

The purpose of this award is to recognize an outstanding community partner who has demonstrated excellence in partnering with a university entity to provide opportunities for students to engage in and learn from the community.  This award was founded to recognize and honor the vital role and commitment of our community partners in this collaboration.

Recognition of the recipient will be the choice of the community partner and they will receive an individual plaque.
