The University of North Florida is partnering with Florida Campus Compact (FL/CC) and Learn and Serve America to support the integration of service-Learning into courses that focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) disciplinary issues. There is also an interest on courses with a focus on Environmental Sustainability and Community Health issues. The STEM Service-Learning Fellows program supports faculty in the redesign and implementation of Service-Learning courses which aligns with the university’s goal of integrating Community-Based Transformational Learning (CBTL) throughout UNF’s curriculum.
