Designate Your Service-Learning Class

Any class that has not been designated through CCELL as service-learning before must be submitted to CCELL for the new designation before it will be considered LSU service-learning. If a previously designated class is being taught by a faculty member teaching it for the first time, it must be submitted to CCELL for the new designation before it will be considered LSU service-learning.

Approval for S-L designation will generally be granted for a specific faculty member’s course section unless a college/department/school states that ALL sections of the course will include S-L activities (see list of designated classes).  Classes will need to be re-certified every 5 years.
