Service-Learning Syllabi

Submit your service learning syllabi for national recognition!

Learn and Serve America’s National Service-Learning Clearinghouse is now developing a national, searchable, online database of higher education service-learning syllabi, K-12 lesson plans, and community-based project ideas. Submit service-learning syllabi for possible inclusion in this new resource.  

Service-learning syllabi are welcome from any accredited U.S. college or university, for courses in any academic department or program and at any level of higher education (undergraduate or graduate). Courses need not have been supported by a Learn and Serve America grant in order to be eligible for inclusion. Staff from Campus Compact, the Clearinghouse’s Higher Education Program Advisor, will review all submissions according to four criteria of quality in service-learning: engagement, reflection, reciprocity, and public dissemination (see for details). All syllabi determined to meet these criteria will be publicly available on both the Clearinghouse’s and Campus Compact’s websites.

Information about more extensive civic and community engagement opportunities that involve multiple service-learning courses or other intentional connections between students’ academic experiences and engagement (e.g., minors, certificates, honors/scholars programs, core curricula requirements) is also welcome.  

Please submit syllabi and other materials as Word documents attached to emails to; please also download, print, and sign the Permissions Form available at and mail it to Julie Plaut at Campus Compact, Brown University Box 1975, Providence, RI 02912.
