The Student Library Loan System would be a collection of donated textbooks from current students enrolled in a diverse course load. This collection of books would be housed in the University Library, and can only be utilized by students who are considered need based. These students would be allowed to take out the textbook for a certain period of time outside of the library for their own study needs. This would assist students who have financial constraints take advantage of their liberal arts education in the same way as students who do not have these obstacles.
The Center for Civic Engagement provides consulting and course development assistance to faculty members interested in teaching a Community Based Learning (CBL) course or undertaking a community-based research project. Through annual CBL Course Development Seminars, one-on-one consultations, and facilitated meetings with potential community partners, the Center helps faculty apply CBL pedagogies and best practices effectively to their courses while also ensuring that our community partners see real benefit to their organizations as a result.
The Center also helps support workshops, speakers, and other activities that increase the knowledge and capacity of faculty and students to partner effectively with community organizations.
Drew University has created a policy to encourage staff members to engage in service and volunteer work.
