The Office for Community-Engaged Learning believes that service helps build identity - civic identity, professional identity, personal identity, academic identity, and community identity, to name a few.  We encourage students at Slippery Rock to begin their community engagement as a volunteer in one of our short-term service projects or through enrollment in an academic service-learning class.  As students become more knowledgeable about our communities, students often seek deeper learning through commitment to an on-going service program or participation in an alternative break.  Students looking to deepen their impact and further enhance their skills have the opportunity to apply for a civic leadership opportunity, including Service Leadership Coordinators, Alternative Break Community Ambassadors, and Experiential Learning Guides.
