Students participating in service learning projects must complete mandatory service learning orientation (which is separate from, and takes place prior to, the placement site in-person orientation) prior to beginning service hours. As of Fall 2010, Community Engagement Center will provide orientations online through SacCt in lieu of classroom presentations. Orientations will last approximately 20 minutes; students must have access to a computer, web connection, and printer in order to complete the orientation and obtain required service learning forms. Faculty who have submitted a faculty course profile will be contacted soon with information pertaining to the new orientation process.
During the online orientation, students will be required to print out the emergency contact form and service learning time log. Students over the age of 18 will electronically submit the required student guidelines and Informed Consent forms; students who are currently under the age of 18 will need to print out and submit to Community Engagement Center a Minor release completed by a legal parent or guardian prior to starting service. For questions regarding these forms or the online orientation, please email Community Engagement Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fingerprinting and TB Testing
Community partners sometimes require fingerprinting and/or TB testing. For information about these two requirements please visit our website www.csus.edu/cec/tb.stm
