- Consider whether the objectives for the course align with the elements that distinguish service-learning courses at Denison.
- Contact the Director of the Alford Center to begin a conversation about the logistics of the course. Ideally, give us a heads up by October 1st for Spring courses and February 15th for Fall courses.
- Once the planning is complete, provide the course number and title along with a brief description to the Center.
- The Center will work to coordinate the schedules of the community partners, transportation, and other details for the course.
