For Faculty & Staff

The Appalachian Center for Civic Life is eager to assist faculty and staff who would like to incorporate a service-learning component in their classrooms or campus programs.


ACCL staff members are available to consult with faculty members about possibilities for service learning - we will share syllabi, discuss community needs and possible service placements, and answer questions about structuring the class. We also provide classroom assistance, including:

  • Assistance with creating developmentally appropriate service sites and student placement within these sites
  • Service contracts for use with site supervisors and students
  • Correspondence with service sites, such as letters of introduction and quick response to situations that need attention
  • Midterm and end-of-semester evaluation and assessment instruments for service sites and students
  • Accounting procedures and weekly progress reports that document students’ progress toward fulfillment of the service requirement
  • Tools and techniques for facilitating reflection sessions in the classroom
  • Staff help with designing and/or leading reflection sessions
