Why do I need to register in ULink49?
- When you choose and your course instructor approves your Community Service Learning (CSL) option, you must register with ULink49 as to understand your rights & responsibilities and agree to the student code of conduct.
Why should I use the community partners in ULink49?
- All community partners in ULink49 are "approved learning sites".
When a site is "approved", this means: They are deemed safe based on the guidelines set by the CSU Chancellor’s office; all sites have agreed to a Community Engagement Agreement; agencies are informed about the goals and intentions of the Community Service Learning program; and are given guidance in developing high-quality opportunities that meet the needs of their organization, the clients they serve, and the learning goals of SF State students.
When you register in ULink49 and are placed at an "approved learning site", you will have access to SF State’s liability insurance that covers service-learning students who do community engagement off-campus.
Is ICCE responsible for tracking my hours and grades?
- ICCE does not give out grades, track your hours nor do we submit your hours to your course instructor. The built in tracking system within ULink49 is an option/resource that we provide to students and course instructors doing CSL. Please track your hours by using the methods outlined by your course instructor.
