The “S”, or service-learning course designation, alerts students to this unique experiential learning pedagogy and formally identifies service-learning course opportunities. The classes are identified as service-learning courses on student academic transcripts.
To ensure that all Mississippi State University (MSU) courses listed as service-learning (“S”) courses have received a consistent review, the Center for Community-Engaged Learning (CCEL) in conjunction with MSU’s Community Engagement Committee has designed a formal service-learning designation process. Service-Learning Advisory Committee (SLAC), comprised of faculty from diverse MSU colleges, Extension, and a Student Association representative, review the applications for “S” designated curricula and guide the faculty in the process.
To learn more about having your course designated as a service-learning class, please go to the “S” Designation Course Suffix page on CASLE’s website.
All Mississippi State University faculty members are eligible to develop a service-learning class featuring the Sweet Potato Innovation Challenge as their community partner. The academic course must be taught with service-learning pedagogy (appropriate for the discipline) and be approved with the “S” or service-learning course designation.
The following faculty members are teaching the fall 2015 service-learning classes featuring the Sweet Potato Innovation Challenge as their course community partner.
