The Center for Global Service Learning
Building relationships with communities around the world
Linking academic outcomes with intentional service provides one of the richest forms of learning for today's students. Kansas Wesleyan University introduced The Center for Global Service Learning in the fall of 2014. This on-campus office is excited to provide a guaranteed service-learning experience to all qualified students wo have attended KWU for at least four semesters. The Wesleyan Journey is a course that every student will want to take. The Center for Global Service Learning will collaborate with faculty to customize dynamic courses that support established community partners around the world. Innovative internship opportunities, vibrant learning experiences domestic and abroad, and meaningful, life-changing service projects are the hallmark of The Center for Global Service Learning.
The Center has a robust resource area both in-house and online. These resources are for students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of KWU. Also, transient faculty and transient students may participate in the near future! Ongoing workshops are designed to address any potential questions faculty and students may have along with preparing them for their Journey.
For more information, contact Dr. Meredith (Trexler) Drees, director of Experiential Learning or call (785) 833-4368.
Serve Salina on Saturdays
Do you feel called to make a difference in your local community, on your campus, or even globally? You can build community, prepare for a life of service, and engage in fellowship through CampusServe. We meet on campus at 8 a.m on a Saturday morning, break into project teams, head out and serve others, and then return for lunch. Together we can show and share the love of Christ!
These events also provide a training ground for faculty and students who are preparing to learn and serve together on a Wesleyan Journey.
