""UAB faculty, staff, and students value collaborations with community organizations. They help enable better understanding of local and global issues, as well as concerns beyond UAB classrooms. The UAB Office of Service Learning and Undergraduate Research works to build mutually beneficial long-term relationships between the university and you.

We can help partner you with students and faculty members engaged in service learning courses. A high-quality service learning course incorporates the following fundamentals:

  • Relevant service with a community partner — the community placement is related to course content, and vice versa.
  • Mutually beneficial community-campus partnerships.
  • Students engage in structured reflection throughout the course experience
  • Public dissemination of the work, preferably including a celebration or demonstration, with the community partner.
