Community Engagement

Kimmel Student Involvment Center
At Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Service-Learning is an important part of our curriculum offered on the campus.  Through the partnership of the Kimmel Student Involvement Center, the SIUE faculty, and SIUE staff, students can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to gain enriching experiences that will not only broaden their own educational background, but will allow them be entrenched in activities that give back to our communities.  

Students who participate in service-learning are provided with a safe, meaningful educational and non-paid position with a nonprofit agency or organization. 

 The benefits of service-learning for the students include:

  • Exploring and learning about a chosen career
  • Learning about new career opportunities
  • Networking for jobs
  • Gaining references
  • Developing critical skills
  • Building an exceptional resume
  • Improving interview skills

 Not only do the students gain much from this experience, but the benefits to you include:

  • Opening doors for students to learn more outside of the classroom
  • Providing an exciting curriculum for the student
  • Helping students gain experiences that will enhance their future careers
  • Helping SIUE gain continued recognition in regards to community service

Additional resources are available to faculty and staff through the Student Learning Handbook.
