CSU Channel Islands Summary:

Community Service on Transcripts

CSU Channel Islands currently does meet the criteria for this credit.

The Service Learning Policy (excerpt pg. 99 from the 2010-2011 CSU Channel Islands Catalog):

The following policies will be adhered to at CI for all courses designated as Service Learning Courses, Service-Learning Internships or courses with Service Learning Components (hereafter collectively referred to as “Service Learning Courses.”)

Service learning is a teaching and learning approach that integrates community service with academic study to enrich learning, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities, while engaging students in reflection upon what was experienced, how the community was benefited, and what was learned. Adapted from the National Commission on Service Learning definition. Community service achievements are listed on CI student transcripts as “SERVICE LEARNING/INTERNSHIP.”
