Request for Partnerships (RFP)
We are excited to release the new and improved Service-Learning (S-L) Spring 2014 Request for Partnerships (RFP). In the spirit of collaboration, we consulted with several of our community partners to make this process easier and more effective for all.
- PURPOSE: The purpose of the RFP process is to identify the needs of our community partners so that we can best connect them with an academic course/faculty member who can collaboratively meet the partner’s needs through their own and/or their students’ engagement with the partner. This semester community-based organizations will apply to the Service-Learning program, not a specific course.
- APPLICATION PROCESS: Applications can be submitted online through the link found in the attached RFP. Through the online application you will not be able to save your work and come back to it later. Therefore, we’ve created a Preparation Worksheet to guide you so you can copy/paste into the text boxes online (you cannot enter responses directly into the worksheet).
- DUE DATE: WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SPRING 2014.
- OPTIONAL: We will be hosting two optional RFP consultation sessions for organizations that would like to brainstorm ideas and possibilities with an S-L staff member. More information can be found in the RFP.
Please share the RFP with your colleagues and networks!
