Students will register for community engaged learning placements that align with their availability and interests through the MSU's Serve. Learn. Engage! database (servelearnengage.msu.edu). Because students will select their own placement, the CSLCE cannot guarantee a predetermined number of students who will serve with community partners for the semester until after registration has closed. A final list of students who have completed registration, criminal background check process, and our required online orientation will be provided to partners on the date listed in the calendar above.
Materials for community partners to engage community engaged learning students will be available before each semester. Interested organizations must submit completed position descriptions each semester and a signed Memorandum of Understanding position on an annual basis.
