For Partners

Becoming a MU Office of Service-Learning Partner

Service-learning is an exciting, hands-on approach to education in which Mid-Missouri area agencies partner with MU undergraduate students through the MU Office of Service-Learning. Together, they arrange service projects and experiences that meet the educational goals of a course as well as providing a needed service in the community.

Through service-learning programs, MU students have served in hands-on environments assisting abused and neglected children, the elderly, the homeless, refugees and at-risk youth; and worked as part or full-time interns in a variety of governmental offices.

Because service-learning placements are tied to a course and monitored by faculty members, student “volunteers” tend to be highly reliable and motivated. In addition, Service-Learning staff members are available to help identify appropriate semester-long activities, offer advice, and act as a liaison when appropriate.

If you are interested in a service-learning partnership with the MU Office of Service-Learning, we would love to hear from you. Contact us at or call (573) 882-0227.
