Teach a ProCES Course

    Integrate Service with your Course 

    There are many ways to incorporate a service lens in your course. Without leaving the classroom, professors could dedicate a portion of the course to the public implications of their academic discipline or explore with students the broader societal impact of a particular field of study. Service courses may also include direct engagement with the community through mutually beneficial service or research projects for community organizations. 

    ProCES courses often include:

    • content that helps students explore and formulate responses to pressing societal issues;
    • historical or theoretical reflection on service;
    • volunteer service linked with coursework; or
    • a community-based research project for a community organization;
