This course is designed to allow students to apply real-world hours of community service toward academic credit at Park University. Students can earn up to nine hours of credit for time spent in service to apply to their degree or a minor.
What is a citizenship and service minor?
One of Park University’s core values is to celebrate GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP through our connected learning and working environment, liberal arts education and community stewardship.
Park University emphasizes the importance of giving back to the global community with our citizenship and service minor.
“Given the large number of high school seniors thinking about a “gap year” before heading to college, (Park University President Dr. Greg) Gunderson is pushing Park to offer online tools that turn those experiences into college credit. Offering a “service minor” will convert lessons learned from volunteer work into substantial credit.”
