The Community Engaged Learning & Service Office coordinates efforts to involve Drake students in meaningful community engagement and service-based learning opportunities.
Faculty & Staff Development opportunities for community engaged learning range from one-on-one consultations to formal fellowships. See our Trainings, Workshops, & Conferences page for specifics. Our goal is to equip instructors with the resources and tools needed to design meaningful community engagement opportunities for students. We also seek to support faculty Scholarship & Research by providing ideas for publication, collaborating on manuscripts, writing letters of support for tenure and more!
Additionally the office can provide financial resources, logistical support, and literature for faculty and staff interested in organizing service-learning opportunities. Service-Learning Mini Grants up to $200 are available to support faculty, staff, and students in creating service-learning experiences by underwriting the costs of supplies, group transportations, and other logistical needs.
Service-Learning Mini Grants applications are accepted on a rolling basis; review time is about two weeks.
