We seek to establish respectful, mutually-beneficial partnerships with organizations in the community. It is our hope that through collaborative partnerships Willamette students, faculty, and staff can address community-identified needs through service while also learning and growing from the experience. We look forward to forming meaningful relationships with community organizations and members

Long Term Partnerships 

Partner with a Service Learning Course

Service-learning combines community service with academic course content. Educators have discovered that a student involved in his/her community can better critically analyze course content when it is "brought to life" through their service experience. Service-learning is more then an effective method of teaching. It is designed to address real needs that have been identified by our service-learning community partners. In this way, service-learning simultaneously promotes service and education to all parties involved.

Students involved in service-learning projects are often required to fulfill a specific number of hours of service that is interactive each week, or throughout the duration of a four-month semester. This means that the service-learning student would be involved consistently in service to your community agency or school for the duration of their service-learning course.
