Service Learning

Community Engagement Cooperative

At Lewis, students and faculty engage in dedicated service to the community through volunteering, community service, and academic service-learning. In keeping with our mission, several university offices collaborate to support the growth of community engagement at Lewis University. 

  • Office of Service Learning (Dr. Christie Billups)
  • University Ministry (Sabrina Poulin)
  • Student Services-Student Development and Leadership (Sean Fagan)
  • Career Services (Kristi Kelly)
  • Volunteers in Service to America/Office of Service Learning (Emilee Studley)

To coordinate community engagement efforts and events, the Community Engagement Cooperative (CEC) addresses specific topics such as assessment, risk management, identifying community sites, developing related databases, mutual events, faculty development. Through the cooperation of these offices CEC strengthens experiential learning, promotes effective and efficient partnerships with community sites, reduces duplication of efforts, and fosters enhanced communication.
