We are pleased to announce NMSU's Service Learning Project, offered through the College of Health and Social Services in Las Cruces, NM. This project will serve as a clearinghouse for students, faculty, and community partners to link service, coursework, and citizenship. NMSU has a professional membership with Community Campus Partnerships for Health and Campus Compact, two professional organizations dedicated to the civic purposes through higher education. These sites offer resources related to civic commitment between university and community, community service opportunities for students, and assistance for faculty who are interested in integrating public and community engagement in their teaching and research.

NMSU is building a community partnership, related directly to service learning, with United Way. At this site, students can explore community volunteer opportunities by linking to "Volunteers".

The NMSU Service Learning Project is intent on building stronger community partnerships. A letter signed by United Way Volunteer Director Bernadine Dallago and College of Health and Social Services Dean Jeff Brandon has been sent out to numerous local agencies to increase awareness in building partnerships with NMSU.
