Browse and Register for Service-Learning Positions

Before you register

  • BEGIN BROWSING positions for your service-learning course. During the first few days of the quarter (sometimes a few days before the quarter starts), students registered for a service-learning course with the Carlson Center can begin reviewing possible service-learning placement options online.
  • Please do not contact organizations to inquire about position logistics. If you have questions, contact the Carlson Center directly or visit our FAQ page to learn more about service-learning in your course. Carlson Center staff will make a presentation in each class about service-learning logistics during the first days of the quarter.

Tips for browsing and logistics
