    Academic Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program (ASLFFP)

    The ASLFFP is designed to provide faculty with the knowledge and support needed to successfully integrate academic service-learning into courses they teach. The program is supported by funding from the Office of the Provost and is open to all faculty. As a part of the program faculty revise a syllabus to include an academic service-learning component that enhances the learning of students and strengthens community partners. Faculty also conduct an action research project in which they identify a research question and collect and analyze data regarding the learning of their students and/or the impact of service-learning on community issues. Program information and applications will be distributed in April with a late May deadline for the 2015-16 academic year. Contact program director Jeffrey Anderson, Ph.D., Professor of Education, for additional information.

    Writing Center

    Staffed by carefully selected and trained undergraduate writing consultants, the Seattle University Writing Center assists students at any stage of the writing process. During hour-long sessions, Writing Center consultants help students effectively engage assignments, develop thesis statements, organize and develop first drafts, and revise and edit later drafts. The Writing Center exists to help all SU students become the best writers they can be. By working with us, students who struggle with writing can learn to write more easily and effectively, while students who already write well can learn to write with more grace and power. See our website for numerous handouts and resources to help students improve their writing. Larry Nichols, Writing Center Director, welcomes faculty discussions about how the Writing Center can best serve their teaching and their students' learning. He is especially interested in helping faculty create writing assignments that engage students in the lively dialogue, deep thinking, and inspiring feedback the Writing Center exists to promote and provide.
