2)      Center for Community Partnerships resources, including community contacts, library materials, and help with transportation;

3)      Course or Teaching Assistants are available for all SL courses, for the semester preceding the semester the course will be taught  (for work with community partners and so forth).  Teaching Assistants during the semester can be covered by the department or using SLIG funds. Contact the Service-Learning Director for such requests;

4)      $4000 grants, $2000 of which may be taken as stipend.
