Current Project-Based Service Learning Offerings for Partners

  • Need a Map?  Each Spring UWM offers a course to social welfare students where they learn the process for creating GIS Maps using existing data sets and accompanying technical reports. If your agency would benefit from having a GIS map that explores issues in your geographic community, please contact us.
  • Need a Grant Writer? Each Fall UWM offers a course in grant writing. While students are responsible for identifying an agency to work with on their own, the CCBLLR often provides a list to the faculty member for students who are not well connected to the Milwaukee non-profit community. If you would like to work with a student on writing a grant for your agency, please contact us.
  • Have a business or technical writing project that needs to be done for a health care agency? We are currently looking for projects for Health Science 200: Allied Health Information Methods. If you work at an agency that would like to have students complete a professional writing project, please fill the form out this Health Science Writing Project Request Form.
