MICS Service Learning
Service learning is a year-long course in which students provide services for non-profit organizations while receiving real-world experience. The skills gained from Mathematics, Computer Science and Computer Information Systems education are applied to fulfill community needs. The class is run as a business. There is a company budget to support two to three projects. Students are assigned corporate tasks as well as project tasks. Students meet collectively for one to two hours a week. This class time is used for technical presentations, team meetings, and giving and listening to progress reports. Students also spend three to five hours a week apart from class time meeting with clients, researching and planning projects, implementing project plans, writing reflections, and completing peer evaluations.
