Office of Engaged Learning

Posting to the OEL Website

We welcome and encourage submissions from community partners, student groups, and campus departments for posting on our website.  We feature the following types of requests on our page:

  • Calls for Volunteers to help with one-time events or short-term projects
  • News items and events pertaining to Engaged Learning
  • Community Partner spotlights
  • Students involved in engaged learning activities

Two different features are used to communicate these requests:

  • Service Opportunities Page: This page links directly from our home page and features one-time events or short-term projects in need volunteers. The listing remains active until the opportunity has passed. Listing your volunteer request on this page also means one-time inclusion in a weekly volunteer opportunities email to those in the campus community who are subscribed to the community listserv.
  • Wild Card Promo Spaces: The OEL home page features two “wild card” promo spaces, which rotate events, news, accomplishments, and stories or spotlights relevant to the Office of Engaged Learning. Each wild card promo is live on the home page for about two weeks, depending on volume of requests. Promo space cannot be guaranteed, but we will always do our best to feature relevant requests.

Items are typically posted to the website on Thursdays at 2:00 pm. To submit a request:
