The Semester of Service Program
The Missouri Campus Compact Semester of Service program encourages students to give their time and talents to communities, and offers a tool for recognizing and celebrating students for their efforts. Since the program began in 2009, it has served as a mechanism for supporting civic engagement and service-learning activities that foster reciprocal partnerships/relationships between our member campuses and the communities they live in and serve.
When students provide service (through volunteering, service-learning, or a combination of service opportunities) to community organizations, government agencies, or community-wide initiatives over the course of a single semester, they track their hours with the Semester of Service Logbook. Logbooks and accompanying documentation are sent to Missouri Campus Compact. Students have the opportunity to be recognized with a certificate based on three different levels of contribution. In order to receive their certificate, the student must download, fill out and mail in (with the Logbook) the Semester of Service certificate application.
