The Public Service Center is committed to expanding service-learning opportunities on campus. Service-learning is an experiential education approach that links academic learning with meaningful community service activities, personal growth, and social awareness and responsibility.

Faculty Recognition

Kaplan Family Endowment for Public Service supports a Distinguished Faculty Fellowship in Service-Learning and the Kaplan Family Distinguished Lecture.

The Kaplan Family Distinguished Faculty Fellowship in Service-Learning awards two faculty members who are having a significant impact on undergraduate, professional, or graduate education at Cornell by involving their students in challenging service-learning programs, a $5,000 award to enable them to further develop an ongoing community-based learning/research project, to initiate a new effort, or to seek institutionalization of a service-learning course.
