You will need either an account issued through UWEC or an account provided though this website in order to use some of our Services.

Beginning Your Project
As a student, you agree to locate a service-learning project that is meaningful and beneficial to the community you are serving. You are responsible for contacting a community partner supervisor before you begin your Service-Learning to communicate and determine the specifics of your project. You also agree to contact a faculty or academic staff mentor about a mentor-approved reflection that you will be required to complete at the end of your project. The specific details of this reflection will be at your mentor’s discretion.
During Your Project
You will need to complete all parts of your project(s) along all stages for your project to be counted for Service-Learning. This work includes filling out a pre-survey that is required before you can submit your project for review.
Emails are provided at your convenience throughout this process; however, we are not responsible if these emails are lost or not delivered. You are still responsible for returning to the UWEC Service-Learning Projects website to check the status of your project(s) and take care of any pending actions that may be present.
Completing Your Project
When you have finished your project in the community, you are responsible for scheduling a time to reflect with your faculty or academic staff mentor. This reflection is required before your project can be considered for Service-Learning. You must also complete the post-survey in your Service-Learning Account after your mentor has finalized your project.
The Service-Learning projects provided for UWEC students must be meaningful in order for those projects to fulfill the Service-Learning graduation requirement.
If you are a Community Partner that takes on the role of a Supervisor, you are responsible for communicating with the student before the project begins, as well as continuing communication throughout the project. You will also use the UWEC Service-Learning Projects Application to approve the student’s project. As a supervisor, it is your responsibility to keep track of the hours a student completes with your organization. After the project is complete, you will return to the UWEC Service-Learning Application to evaluate the student’s service with your organization.
As a Mentor, you must communicate with the student before the Service-Learning project begins and encourage the student to fill out the UWEC Service-Learning Projects application as soon as reasonably possible. As a mentor you should assist the student (as needed) in establishing learning outcomes for their service-learning project.
By accepting the role of Mentor in a given project, it is your responsibility to log into the UWEC Service-Learning Projects application to approve the student’s project, review the student’s evaluation, and to complete the student’s project following a reflection activity with the student.
