Service Learning Office
College of Education Service Learning Office collaborates with community partners to provide students with educational opportunities in community service through placement in government agencies, educational entities, civic organizations, and advocacy groups. We also fulfill community needs by maintaining and developing partnerships between college, student, and community, as well as providing assistance to faculty who are interested in developing service learning components in their courses.
Under the directorship of Denise Rodriguez-Strawn, College of Education Service Learning Office has helped over 50 students receive the US President’s Volunteer Service Award from the White house. Students have completed over 12,000 hours of service in Las Cruces Public Schools and/or local non-profits, increased retention of students, and created a successful mentoring program.
The office implemented the Aggie Tutor partnership in Las Cruces Public School in the fall of 2007 and now has four successful programs throughout the college to included undergraduates, graduates, and collaboration with three departments.
