Service Learning Scholars

The University’s Service Learning Scholars Program provides highly motivated students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a service-learning project for 10 weeks in the summer in a setting outside of the classroom. Scholars work in a Delaware community agency (nonprofit, governmental, community-based action research or service-based corporate activity) and simultaneously pursue academic reflection under the guidance of a UD faculty mentor. In this immersion-learning experience, students spend the bulk of their week working in the community and one-quarter of their time in academic reading, discussion and reflection.

To learn more about Service Learning Scholars,  check out the website or contact Sue Serraserra@udel.edu

Service Learning Courses
  • BHAN403, Adapted Physical Activity: students design, implement, and evaluate appropriate physical activity programs and interventions for individuals with special needs participating in a variety of clinical settings (e.g., schools, community centers, private clubs, camps, sport leagues, institutions, clinics, or group homes).
  • HLTH320, Chronic Illness: From Person to Policy: in which students learn about chronic illness from a variety of perspectives, including through hands-on volunteer experience with community members living with cancer, MS, ALS, heart failure, and other chronic illnesses.
  • NTDT350, Nutrition in Older Adults: in which students spend 30 hours in the community, focused on a training program for feeding older adults at a nursing home, Meals on Wheels, and a health fair that focuses on food preparation and mental health issues.

These are just 4 examples of the dozens of service learning courses at UD. To learn more about service learning on campus, visit the course catalog.

Become a STAR Ambassador!

The CHS STAR Program is a group of select student volunteers who serve as ambassadors for the College of Health Sciences. These enthusiastic students assist CHS administration, faculty and staff in promoting the College and its programs to prospective students, parents, teachers, school/guidance counselors, and the community. They lead tours of the Health Sciences Complex at the STAR campus, assist with recruitment activities throughout the year (Discovery Days, Blue & Golden Saturdays, Delaware Decision Days, etc.), attend special events, and assist in the Undergraduate Student Services office. As a STAR Ambassador, students gain personal and professional growth through the variety of activities they participate in throughout the year.
