Advanced Graduate Certificate in Service-Learning

Posted on April 21, 2006

Certificate of Excellent Practice Initiative

We realize there’s a potential for confusion here, so let me clarify: The UW-RF Graduate Certificate in Service-Learning is for anyone who wants to begin or improve his or her service-learning practice. The Certificate of Excellent Practice Initiative is for advanced practitioners who would like to receive formal recognition of their expert service-learning practice while earning graduate credits.

Using criteria developed by a national panel of service-learning experts, the NYLC evaluation board offers voluntary certification of practitioners whose work meets the established criteria for high-level service-learning. We will pilot the program beginning June 1 and are seeking advanced practitioners to participate.

This program is offered in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and includes three online units of study, culminating in the submission of an online portfolio for review by NYLC’s evaluation committee.

Participants receive:
* two graduate credits from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (requires successfully passing all class work)
* advanced training in service-learning best practices
* a Certificate of Excellent Practice, providing national recognition of expert service-learning practice (requires successfully passing the NYLC evaluation board review)
