Service Learning in Geology

GEOL-G 199


G107, G110, G115, or G135.


Students participate in a choice of community service projects offered through the Center for Earth and Environmental Sciences at IUPUI. The G199 course consists of participating in five half-day environmental service learning projects with the IUPUI Center for Earth and Environmental Science (CEES).

The CEES Environmental Service Learning project schedule and registration information can be found at: HTTP://WWW.CEES.IUPUI.EDU/EDUCATION/ENVIRONMENTAL-SERVICE-LE ARNING-UNDERGRAD. At least six dates for service learning project dates are normally set by the first day of the second week of classes; occasionally, events are added depending on demand from students and needs of our community partners. Please review the service leaning schedule, select your   projects and register for them online. You must be able to attend at least 5 of the scheduled half-day sessions; note that projects may be rescheduled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances by our community partners. Therefore, you    should be available for back-up dates. After completing the service learning projects (including project specific reflections), G199 students will complete a 3-5 page paper outlining the overarching themes of the service learning projects and the projects' relationships to environmental stewardship.  At the start of class, notify the instructor and also send an email to that you will be enrolling in the G199 and registering for five service learning events.  You do not need to meet with the instructor before enrolling in the events.
