Service Scholars will complete the following community-based learning requirements during their four years at Meredith:
- Complete 20 hours of community service per semester with one off campus, approved community partner. Over the course of a students’ eight semesters, they will be required to volunteer within three different community issue areas to prompt a diverse exposure through their experience.
- Assist with the facilitation of one on-campus, service-learning program per semester. Service-learning programs include but are not limited to Meredith sponsored day of service events, community awareness programs and speaker events, and donation collections.
- Participate in critical reflection workshops with fellow Service Scholars and Service Scholars Program staff to reflect on the impact of their civic engagement efforts.
- Enroll in the FYE service-focused section taught by a member of the Service Scholars Program staff. Note, if a student is involved in another Meredith Program which also requires enrollment in an FYE Section then the student is exempt from this program requirement.
