Service-Learning Orientations

Southern & Dobson students taking a class that incorporates service-learning are required to attend an orientation session before serving.

Orientation Paperwork

You will need to attend an in-person Orientation session at the beginning of the semester or complete the Online Orientation for either In-Course Module or Independent Module, depending on which service-learning program you are participating in.

Upon completion of an Orientation, you will have received or need to pick up the necessary Service-Learning paperwork:

  • Yellow Packet – In-Course Module paperwork for traditional service-learning classes
  • Green Packet – In-Course Module paperwork for Education & Math 156 courses
  • Salmon Packet – In-Course Module paperwork for a group-based service-learning project
  • Blue Packet – Independent module paperwork and application

Remember - you will earn college credit for a successfully completed project.

Online Orientation

Some instructors have built-in course-specific online orientations on their Canvas page.  We have the following Online Orientations available for you below: 

In-Person Orientations
