Housed under the Community Engagement Initiative, the Office of Service Learning provides information about service-learning opportunities at the University of Delaware (UD). It supports and advises faculty interested in enhancing and developing service-learning courses, students interested in pursuing community engagement projects, and community partners interested in exploring connections with UD.

Student programming includes the Community Engagement Scholars for incoming first-year students. A four-year program, designed for students with a commitment to engaging with community through thoughtful connection of their curricular and co-curricular goals and career plans.
The Service-Learning Scholars program provides highly motivated students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a service-learning or community-based research project for ten weeks during the summer in a setting outside of the classroom.
The Blue Hen Engagement Fellows program provides an opportunity for part time funded community engagement during academic and summer sessions.
