SL Course Designation Request Survey

To request the "SL" designation for your UVM course, please fill out this survey.  You may designate a course up to one week before the first day of classes, but we highly recommend doing so before online registration for your course begins.  If your course is approved as an SL course, the online listings for your course will include "SL" in the course name.  The "SL" will also appear on student transcripts.

Please contact Tom Wilson if you are interested in working with an SL-TA in your service-learning course.  We generally place SL-TA's LATE IN THE SEMESTER PRIOR to a course, but you are welcome to check with Tom after that deadline.  

Students receive academic credit for serving as an SL-TA (up to 5 hrs/week) through enrolling in CDAE 195/ NR185/ EDSS195: SL: Critical Perspectives on Service-Learning & Community Engagement, taught by CUPS Director Susan Munkres.  


For courses which are always service-learning whenever they are taught, you may request a "permanent" designation status.  We will automatically designate these each semester, after confirming with you by email. Please contact Susan ( if you think this applies to your course, and let us know the full course listing and the semester it is typically taught. 

If you have any questions about the designation process, please feel free to contact us at or 802-656-0095.   Thank you!
