Students interested in completing the community service requirement over the summer must register for CMSV 100-01 for Term 5 by coming to the Hagen Center once Summer Registration starts in late March.
Students registered for the CMSV 100 course must attend an Orientation Thursday, April 30th at 5:00 p.m. in 201 Shouvlin Center. Students who enroll in the course after April 30th will sign up for a make-up Orientation when they register for the course.
The intent of the requirement is to have students serve within the Springfield/Clark County community, and primarily with one of the partner sites listed on the Community Service Opportunities List. If a student wants to pursue a service experience that is not on the Opportunities List, then they must fill out a Self-design proposal. When reviewing the proposal, the Director of Community Service will consider if a similar opportunity can be offered in the local community, if the service meets the guidelines for CMSV 100, and if the experience allows the student to achieve the desired outcomes of CMSV 100. The self-design proposal deadline is Friday, June 5th or prior to starting the service.
Although students register for Term 5, they have between May 18th and August 23rd to complete their service hours.
Summer registration for CMSV 100-01 carries the presumption that the student will be enrolling in the Fall '15 semester since completion requires attending a mandatory reflection session on Tuesday, August 25th from 5-6pm in 105 Shouvlin (at the reflection, students will also turn in all necessary paperwork for the course).
When Term 5 ends, students will receive a NR (no report) grade for CMSV 100 and this grade will be changed to a Satisfactory grade once all requirements of CMSV 100 are successfully completed.
Participation in a service immersion experience offered during break times must be sponsored by a Wittenberg organization/department. For an immersion experience to count for CMSV 100, it must also offer participants who want to use this experience to complete their community service requirement an engagement experience in the local community (this experience is coordinated by Community Service and the leader of the SI experience, is a minimum of 3 hours, and in most cases should be completed prior to the trip).
