Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I am ready for Service-Learning students at my agency?
Use our agency quiz to determine your agency's preparedness for taking on students as volunteers.

Who do I contact with a one-time, short-term volunteer request?
Contact the Dornsife Center for Community Engagement at 509.777.4685 and we work with you to identify the best course of action.

What is community-based research and how can it benefit my agency?
Community-based research is a contribution of faculty and student resources of the college to community agencies and organizations. CBR is knowledge created through research with and for the community to address a need or answer a question that is generated by the community. CBR Projects are undertaken in academic courses, or through independent studies. CBR Projects are completed with reports to the community. Agencies may benefit from research that helps them to improve their understanding of their service populations, the effectiveness of their programs, their demographics, their funding and potential partnerships in the community.
