The Center for Service Learning offers services and supports to students, faculty, departments, community engagement professionals, and community partners to advance the interests and commitment of the university in promoting public service, community and civic engagement. Our efforts include service learning, civic engagement, community-engaged scholarship, and other community-engaged efforts.
Through community and campus partnerships, the Center for Service Learning advances service-learning, community-engaged scholarship, and civic engagement that fosters a commitment to participation for a diverse, just, and global society.
We envision an interconnected community in which all students, faculty, staff, and community partners mutually benefit by collectively addressing societal issues.
The Center for Service Learning at the University of Kansas acknowledges that the University of Kansas resides on the ancestral territory of several tribal nations, including the Kaw, Osage, and Shawnee peoples. Specifically, the University occupies land taken from these nations.
This land acknowledgement recognizes that Native Americans are traditional guardians of the land and that there is an enduring relationship between Native peoples and these traditional territories.
In addition, we recognize, advocate, and support the sovereignty of the four-federally recognized tribes of Kansas, the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas, the Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska and the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska.
