Course Designation

Making it Official

Take the following steps to officially designate your class as a community-based learning course. This allows students to find the course more easily, qualifies you for funding and transportation opportunities and qualifies you for assistance from a Community-based Learning Fellow. If you have any questions before or during the designation process, please contact Assistant Director Beth Tryon at etryon@wisc.edu - the Morgridge Center staff are here to help you along the way!


Step 1:
Follow departmental procedures to get proper approval for a change in course content/new course


Step 2:
Confirm proposed course meets definition of community-based learning or community-based research and UAPC criteria.


Step 3:
Either you or your curricular representative can complete the course designation form.


Step 4:
The Morgridge Center for Public Service’s faculty service-learning committee will review the request and notify the registrar to add the designation to the Course Guide, so students can see it when they filter their class search.
