LAWRENCE — The Center for Service Learning at the University of Kansas has recognized 227 students in 53 disciplines for completing certification in service learning during the 2007-08 school year.

Students were recognized in a ceremony held May 8 in the Kansas Room of the Kansas Union. Andi Witczak, director of the Center for Service Learning, opened the ceremony by thanking the students, faculty, administration and community partners who supported service learning throughout the year. Senior Vice Provost Kathleen McCluskey-Fawcett spoke about the history of service learning at the university and the importance of its future. More than 80 students attended the ceremony.

In addition to certificates, students will receive a designation on their transcripts that informs future employers and graduate and professional schools that the students have dedicated significant time to classes and activities that foster civic engagement, community involvement and leadership.

The certification process consists of four components: completion of a service learning course; an independent service project; a set of directed civic engagement and leadership readings; and a reflection. All undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for certification.

Students who completed certification are listed below by home county, state or country.
