A Closer Look: Video highlights service learning

February 7, 2007

SF State's community service learning program is one of six highlighted in the California State University’s service learning video [a close-captioned version is also available (requires Real Player)].

Chancellor Charles B. Reed, who appears in the introduction, said that since 1999 one million CSU students have participated in community service learning programs, giving 30 million hours of volunteer service in communities throughout California.

Two SF State Community Service Learning projects are highlighted on the SF State segment of the video. Broadcasting and marketing students produced a volunteer recruitment public service announcement for San Francisco’s Project Homeless Connect. SF State fashion design and merchandising students volunteered their time at A Miner Miracle, a non-profit that provides low-income San Franciscans with business apparel.

"This video shows what students will gain from taking a Community Service Learning course as well as how public and private agencies can benefit from the efforts of student volunteers," said Perla Barrientos, manager of the Institute for Civic and Community Engagement. "It also illustrates the impact SF State faculty who teach CSL courses can have on a student's knowledge about subject matter, professional commitment and community."
