What to Know Before Selecting a Service Learning Site
Each preservice teacher must perform his/her hours from a list of designated and approved University of Akron partnering sites. These sites will be posted on the Service Learning Matrix located outside Zook 1.
Service learners may not complete their experiences at their place of employment.
Observation hours which have been conducted in other classes may not be counted as part of a service learning requirement.
Service learning has discontinued the practice of site exceptions unless there are extenuating circumstances. If you are requesting an exception, you must provide appropriate documentation, and a formal letter requesting a site exception.
Students have available site selections from Summit, Medina, Stark, Wayne and Cuyahoga Counties, several of which offer evening and Saturday hours.
Please choose a site that will fit your needs and your schedule.
