Community Partners


 

Below is our growing list of community partners. We typically ask students to select a venue for completion of their Academic Service-Learning project, which entails a semester-long commitment. As we continue to grow our AS-L activities, so will our need for additional neighboring institutions serving a multilingual population. If you are interested in joining our list, please contact us or tell us when we may contact you. (Schedule phone call or visit by clicking "here")
