INTRODUCED

HB 1179 -- Service Learning

Co-Sponsors:  Hosmer, McClelland

This bill requires the Coordinating Board for Higher Education
to promote and catalogue service learning opportunities
available in state institutions of higher education.  "Service
learning" is defined in the bill, and may include such
activities as tutoring, literacy training, neighborhood or
environmental improvements, and assisting the elderly or
disabled.

To promote service learning, the Coordinating Board is required
to (1) include information about service learning in workshops,
seminars, and other training activities attended by faculty,
administrators, and staff; (2) share information about active
service learning programs with the state institutions of higher
education; (3) develop written information about the options
available to colleges and universities in implementing service
learning programs; and (4) encourage state institutions of
higher education to establish, continue, or expand service
learning programs.

The bill requires the Coordinating Board to catalogue service
learning by (1) including information about service learning
programs in the institutional information collected by the
board; (2) providing summary information about service learning
programs at state institutions of higher education to community
and nonprofit agencies and schools, upon request; and (3)
providing an annual report to the Governor and the General
Assembly by September 30 of each year, beginning in 2001, about
service learning programs at state institutions of higher
education.
