This is a great option for those looking for a 2-credit class to reach full-time status, or interested in exploring how community service and experiental learning could fit into their undergraduate education. I really hope some of you take advantage of this! Description after the fold.
General Studies 344: Introduction to Service and Community
There are many ways to get involved in the community, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. This course will take a hands-on approach to helping students define what service means to them, provide a starting point for community involvement by arranging volunteer positions with a selection of local non-profit organizations, and offer support for thinking critically about the issues facing society today and how to make these issues personally meaningful.
This course will include a service-learning component of 3-5 hours per week at a local non-profit organization. Those interested in the course should fill out the online survey at https://catalysttools.washington.edu/webq/survey/engage/102671
