The Chancellor's Scholars Program stresses service for several reasons. Service gives scholars a chance to 'pay it forward' by contributing to campus and community; the opportunity to learn  valuable skills, gain job training, and/or develop and exercise leadership talents; and the opportunity to pursue a passion outside the classroom - whether that is working with children, caring for animals, or sharing their love for SIU with campus visitors, to name only a few possibilities. Service can provide myriad opportunities and experiences;so think carefully about your interests prior to choosing service projects, talk with us about possibilities, and reflect upon what you have learned and achieved after service is completed. 

Community Service:

All scholars must complete at least 10 hours of community service per year and may complete their entire service requirement through community service. Students should work with the Center for Service Learning and Volunteerism (CSLV) to select an approved community service project. In order to receive credit for the completion of a community service project, students must complete a service form and return it to CSLV (Student Services Building Room 491).

Campus Leadership and Service:

All scholars may complete at least 10 hours of their annual service requirement through campus leadership and service. A list of campus service opportunities is available here.
