Student Development

Unlike many higher education institutions that seek to promote an ethic of service through extra-curricular student programs and work-study efforts, CSUMB has made a commitment to community service as an educational goal, placing service learning squarely at the heart of its academic program.

Through initial funding from the Corporation for National Service and other local donors, the SLI developed a model student leadership program that has enabled CSUMB student leaders to play key roles in the development and delivery of the service learning program at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB).
