Courses that incorporate service-learning projects provide the hands-on learning that comes from the direct application of classroom skills to “real world” need. This experience will help you develop your skills through active participation in ongoing projects that also meet the needs of the community. This is your opportunity to add to your resume, a service learning experience that has been closely aligned with your course learning objectives and to give to the greater community at the same time. Apply new learning, increase your professional network, and make a difference.
Students that participate in service-learning projects will receive free services from the UNM Career Services Department. These services include resume building, career counseling, interest assessments, and many others. Certificates of completion of the service-learning based course are also available. These special opportunities are indicated by the “SL” icon in the Business & Technology section of the UNMCE Catalog.
