Become a Partner

The following courses are still open to additional partnerships for Spring 2015 (details are available through the Service-Learning Concept Map linked below). If you're interested in partnering with any of the following for Spring 2015 or would like to be added to our email list for Fall 2015, please email

  • Becoming a Global Leader (MBA students) In this MBA-level course, students will explore the process of becoming a global leader though discussions, reading, and exercises on topics such as cross-cultural differences, competencies of leaders, social responsibility and ethical leadership, and influencing, managing, and motivating change in a multicultural environment.
  • Enabling Engineering Students develop a proposal for a design project that uses engineering technologies to improve the lives of individuals with cognitive or physical disabilities. Project groups work with end users and caregivers at local nursing homes and special education schools to assess a specific need, research potential solutions, and develop a detailed proposal for a project.
  • Gender Violence: Bystander Education Theory & Practice The course offers participants the opportunity to learn about the theoretical and practice models used to understand and respond to gender-based violence by convening and facilitating public discourse about gender-based violence. Students will explore topics such as battery, gender roles, teen dating violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault/rape and homophobia as facets of men’s violence against women.
  • Project Management Capstone Offers students an opportunity to utilize all of the project management skills they have acquired in this master’s certificate program to evaluate project processes and outcomes of a single project throughout the entire project life cycle. Examines both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, with an emphasis on tactical approaches and earned value management. Also examines stakeholder analysis and practical techniques for reporting performance results.

REQUEST FOR PARTNERSHIPS PURPOSE: The purpose of the RFP process is to identify the needs of community-based organizations so that we can best connect them with faculty and courses within the Service-Learning Program.

APPLICATION PROCESS: Applications can be submitted online through the link found in the RFP. Through the online application you will not be able to save your work and come back to it later. Therefore, we’ve created an Application Outline to guide you so you can copy/paste into the text boxes online (you cannot enter responses directly into the worksheet). Additionally, we encourage you to take a look at the S ervice-Learning Concept Map & Courses. We are no longer accepting applicatoins for spring 2015.

If your needs don't fit within our timeline, all is not lost. We'd love to hear more about our community partners' needs. Click here to share!
