Frequently asked questions about service learning
You will see a confirmation message after submitting the service learning registration form. You'll also receive an email (to the email address you provided on the registration form) regarding project details and any other pertinent information.
Once registration opens, projects do frequently fill fast. If a project is no longer listed in the registration menu and registration is open, it means that this particular project is full. A notice is also provided on the website when individual projects are closed.
All instructors who offer service learning for their courses also offer alternatives. Speak with your instructor directly about additional projects you can complete.
All projects are subject to change with weather conditions. If weather conditions are unfavorable for a service learning project, the cancellation notice will be posted on the website usually a day in advance of the work day, and you will be sent a cancellation notice via email. The project will then be held on the already scheduled rain date. Please do not call to ask about cancellations. All information can be found on the web and via email. If you do not see a cancellation notice, the project will be held as scheduled.
Each project site page has an address and/or Google map for the site. From the map, you can click "Directions" and input your starting address to find directions to the project work site. We also provide additional information about directions and the meeting location on the project site page and in the informational email we send out before the project.
Service learning project work days are an extension of the classroom. Only students registered for a service learning project may attend the projects. Please, no guests, including children.
The G199 course consists of students participating in five environmental service learning projects with the IUPUI Center for Earth and Environmental Science. The project schedule and registration information can be found on our website. Please review the service leaning schedule, select five projects and register for them online. G199 students should contact the Director of CEES, Pierre Jacinthe, at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform of G199 enrollment and with questions regarding registration and project information. After completing the five service learning projects, G199 students will complete a 3-5 page paper outlining the overarching themes of the service learning projects and the projects’ relationships to the mission of CEES. All papers will be submitted via the G199 Canvas site after the five service learning projects are completed for a course grade.
