Jan and Bud Richter Center
Service-learning faculty need to be familiar with the first two forms as part of teaching a service-learning course.
The Learning Plan
The Learning Plan is the official document that specifies the student’s responsibilities at their service-learning site. Each student in the class must complete one of these forms. Signed by the student, the community partner representative, and the faculty. Form must be kept for 3 years.
Student Tracking Sheet
The student tracking sheet is an optional tool for students to use to help keep track of their individual service hours. When students go to the community based organization site, they can fill out the log. This tracking sheet can be used by faculty to double check a students hours and by students to serve as proof of the hours they served at the community based organization.
Student Safety Guidelines
The Richter Center, in conjunction with the Fresno State Office of Environmental Health and Safety, Risk Management and Sustainability, is happy to provide you with the attached safety tips sheet. Please share this with all students in your service-learning classes.
