Service-Learning 

Service-learning is a form of education that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities (Learn and Serve America National Service-Learning Clearinghouse). Service-learning is similar to other forms of education, such as internships, in that it is hands-on, student-centered, and directly applicable to the curriculum. However, service learning is distinguished by its reciprocal and balanced emphasis on both student learning and the needs of the community.

Non-Profit Studies 

The Graduate Non-Profit Studies Certificate is an interdisciplinary program which provides students with the basic knowledge and skills necessary for work in the non-profit sector. This certificate program is appropriate for current Southern Miss graduate students who wish to pursue careers in the nonprofit sector as well as individuals with a baccalaureate degree who are currently employed in or wish to transition to the nonprofit sector and need additional or specialized training.

Internships

If your organization has difficulty finding volunteers or could use a few extra hands, redefining volunteer opportunities by establishing an intern program can serve as a practical solution. 

  • Find future employees
  • Test-drive the talent
  • Increase productivity
  • Enhance perspective
  • Take advantage of low-cost labor
  • Give back to the community
  • Support students
