Service Learning Hours: 1-5

Students are to deliver a Persuasive Speech requiring volunteering at a non-profit charity of their choice. Students should volunteer and interview an administrator or worker to have credibility/ethos, meaningful examples or stories/pathos, and an understanding of the needs of the organization/logos. Students then use this experience and knowledge to encourage their audience to volunteer with or support the charity.

Students are to serve the organization from 1-5 hours to help the organization and gain experiences and insights needed for the persuasive speech.

Thus, students serve the organization through a hands-on experience and through promoting the organization to a classroom of peers.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
