Mission

Building Rockets at Hillrise Elementary

 

The College of Education SLED Program’s primary mission is to support  college of education faculty and the students enrolled in classes that have implemented the service learning component. We are committed to fulfilling community needs by maintaining and developing partnerships between the college, students and the community, as well as providing assistance to faculty who are interested in developing service-learning components in their courses. After the formal semester of academically based service learning, these students are then provided with the option to continue to work in the schools and community agencies as volunteers.

 

The SLED programs are developed to provide opportunities for students to work with a diverse population within agencies who commit to providing our students with mentoring opportunities to build leadership and critical thinking skills.
