Community Service Learning app


Community Service Learning (CSL) is an educational approach that integrates service in the community with intentional activities. Within effective CSL efforts, members of both educational institutions and community organizations work together towards outcomes that are mutually beneficial.

Known by a variety of terms (e.g. service learning, community based learning), CSL programs are most effective when they include key elements drawn from experimental education theory, especially developing critical thinking and intentionally facilitating reflection. Carefully designed and implemented CSL programs and courses assist students to make meaning from their community experiences, to connect experience outside of the classroom to more theoretical study, and to develop as individuals in relation to their values, their sense of social responsibility, and their leadership skills.

Improve your Compliance Management


U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) now requires institutions that offer distance education in a state in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to state jurisdiction as determined by the state, to obtain approval for their online programs in each state. The requirements as to which activities require authorization, the application processes, and the costs to comply vary greatly from state-to-state. Also, state authorization is not a one-shot process. It is a process that needs to be revised regularly owing to ever-changing requirements and varying renewal timelines of each State Authorization Agency (SAA).
