Community Opportunities

We are connected to numerous non-profit agencies in the Tarrant County area. If you are interested in partnering, please see opportunities listed below and contact Dr. Rosangela Boyd at oce@tcu.edu.


Internships

We work in partnership with the Center for Career and Professional Development to develop internship opportunities in non-profit organizations. These internships are known as the Public Service Consulting Corps, and will provide a select group of students with a unique opportunity to apply their academic knowledge and critical thinking skills, serve community needs, and develop professional, leadership, and research skills. In partnership with  identified community partners, students will have the opportunity to create and implement community (civic) engagement projects on and off campus. Students will participate in training and workshops designed to expose them to a variety of social issues impacting the Fort Worth community, as well as prepare them with the skills needed to become catalysts for social change.

For information on how to become a site for internships, contact us at oce@tcu.edu.

Service-Learning

Academic Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection. Students engage in community service in response to community-identified concerns and learn about the root causes of issues as well as their roles as citizens. We welcome community agencies to partner with our faculty and become our co-educators. Become an approved Academic Service-Learning partner.
