GW Service Learning Requirements

Class of 2020 and 2021 Grad Requirement. (Freshmen and Sophomores)
Service Learning for the class of 2020 and 2021 (current freshmen and sophomores) will be project-based. Students must complete projects connected to classroom curriculum. Just completing 40 hours will not suffice for the new CPS Board policy. You must complete projects that are offered in your classes during your 4 years at GW. Any service learning or community service completed outside of these 2 class projects will be submitted as volunteer hours but are not required for graduation.
