Univ. of Montevallo Office of Service-Learning
The Office of Service Learning was established in Fall of 2009 through funding from Shelby County Community Services to develop and support the University of Montevallo Falcon Scholars in Action Program (UMFSIA) and other service initiatives. It was expanded to include Community Engagement in Spring of 2011. The office is collaboratively administered by Student Affairs and Academic Affairs. The goals of the OSLACE are: · to support faculty in integrating service into their teaching and research · to assist students in identifying appropriate service opportunities and support their development as community leaders · to enhance university engagement in the community · to serve as a clearinghouse of service opportunities for faculty, staff and students A key project is the Blueprints College Access Initiative, a direct service-learning experience for college students to provide college access counseling and mentoring to low-income high school students. Eight in-classroom workshops are combined with college-going culture activities, financial aid information and relationships with college mentors to create a college-positive culture. Sessions cover topics from financial aid and financial literacy to career assesments, resume building, interview skills and choosing the right school. Blueprints creates opportunities for both students and parents to engage in the college application process, builds community support, provides opportunities for high school students to visit college campuses and equips new high school graduates for post-graduation success.
