Honors Service Learning

The 20-hour service learning option offered by the honors program is intended to help students gain an appreciation for the value of involvement in their communities and recognize the obligation of citizens to engage in civic activities. A variety of options is available for students to fulfill this program option and students may also propose their own activities. The service learning experience is coordinated through the Community-Based Learning office, Mary Smith, director of service learning. She can be reached at 913-469-8500, ext. 3143, or by email.

Students who select the service learning option will document their activities by writing a reflection paper and submitting it to the honors program director at the end of the semester in which the service learning was done.. Refer to Service Learning Reflection Paper Guidelines (PDF) for more details.
