Service Showcase


Spring 2018 Service Showcase is on April 20, 2018!

The Service Showcase is an opportunity for students to share their service projects and experiences with the University community and Lawrence community partners.  We are seeking students who have completed service projects or placements that have made an impact on them as students and the community. This event will provide students an opportunity to network with service minded professionals, practice their presentation skills, and add additional experience to their educational portfolio.

Congratulations to our 2017 Top Honors winners:


Monetary awards are given to the top three posters. All KU students are invited to submit proposals!


Criteria for Submission

Submitted applications will be evaluated on the following general criteria.  Applicants selected to present at the Service Showcase will have the cost of printing their poster covered by the Center for Service Learning.

Authentic Community Partnership

  • Did the student collaborate closely with a community partner on a community identified need?
  • What was the value of the project to the community partner or larger community?

Social Responsibility & Civic Identity
