The Service-Learning Seminar at The University of Southern Mississippi began in 2000 when Southern Miss, through the Center for Community and Civic Engagement (CCCE), became one of six universities across the country selected to partner with Eastern Michigan University through a grant, Fund for the Improvement for Post Secondary Education (FIPSE), to provide professional development for university faculty through academic service-learning fellowships.

The grant provided funding for faculty release time for a faculty liaison to teach a service-learning seminar each spring semester.  Since then the seminar has engaged over 90 faculty in high quality service-learning. Faculty applications are accepted and 6 faculty are chosen annually to participate in the seminar.

The seminar assist faculty in designing, developing, and executing service-learning components in their existing curriculum. Faculty undertake their own project through the seminar where CCCE staff assist them in identifying and connecting with a community partner.
