SLDS Group Project

The SLDS Group Project (GP) is an opportunity for students to collaborate with each other and develop a project to benefit communities of their choice.  Teams showcase their work and practice their abilities and skills to demonstrate their growth and understanding of working with peers and colleagues.

Students identify issues and opportunities of importance in a community then formulate and implement a project to address local needs. Typically, group service performed by students falls into one of three categories: 

  • Direct – Students work directly with representatives from on-campus or off-campus community organizations
  • Indirect – Students work behind the scenes, providing added-value to existing organizations or departments
  • Community-Based Research (CBR) – Students conduct research to answer a question posed by a community organization or department
