How can SOURCE assist you with your course?

If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, then we can help!

We can assist faculty in setting up practical experiences for students. Through our network of partnering community-based and non-profit organizations, our center works to develop internships, short-term learning experiences, volunteer positions, Federal Work study placements, MPH Capstone projects, field placements and more.

If your course REQUIRES, RECOMMENDS, ENCOURAGES or GIVES CREDIT to students to respond to community needs, then we can help. Tell us more about your course requirements, goals, objectives and learning outcomes, and we can assist you in identifying relevant community-based organizations.

With our help, you can provide your students with a resource to reach out to the community.

If you already have strong partnerships with community-based organizations for your course, we can still help! First, we'd be interested in learning more about your partnerships. Other students may want to work with your partnering organizations, particularly if there is a good learning experience. Maybe you would like further assistance with the REFLECTION COMPONENTS of your course. We can help you plan activities in the class for students to think about what they have learned through their service experience and how their learning relates to your course content. Let us help you with your reflective strategies.

Use SOURCE to enhance student understanding of course content. With help from our center, your course can make a difference to the East Baltimore community and to your students.
