The Chancellor's Scholars Program stresses service for several reasons. First, service gives scholars a chance to 'pay it forward' by contributing to campus and community, while also giving the opportunity to learn valuable skills, gain job training, and/or develop and exercise leadership talents. It also gives 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 10 hours of community service per year. 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 upload it to the "Assignments" folder on the Chancellor's Scholars Program mycourses page and also submit it to the CSLV via email or in paper copy (more information on this process and a copy of the service form are available on the CSP mycourses homepage)
