History of Service Learning at SCCC
The Liberal Arts Division is in a collaborative partnership with The College of Saint Rose, The Sage Colleges, Union Graduate College, and the Greater Capital Region Teacher Center, for “Project SLATE” (“Service Learning and Teacher Education”). The partners have expanded organized service learning by integrating community service into their undergraduate and graduate curricula. Working as a consortium under a grant from the Federal Corporation for National and Community Service, the colleges share ideas and strategies for creating organized service learning experiences.

As part of SLATE, the SCCC Early Childhood and the Teacher Education Programs have embedded service learning outcomes into multiple courses. The curriculum introduces students to the foundations of service learning and allows them to plan, build and implement service learning projects as they move from course to course.The Human Services and Chemical Dependency Counseling Programs also have services learning requirements in several courses.
