Service Learning Intensive (SVI) - a teaching and learning pedagogy that engages faculty, students, and community members in a partnership to achieve academic learning objectives, meet community needs, promote civic responsibility, and reflect on the learning experience.

More specifically, the objectives for this course are for students to:

  • Apply environmental chemistry concepts learned in the classroom to the interpretation environmental analysis results
  • Use Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) through the use of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and EPA methods for the analysis of metals, anions, dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, conductivity, ammonia, and turbidity
  • Follow up on previous years’ results showing elevated E. coli and nitrates at some sites

  • Present results to key stakeholders in the Village of Yellow Springs and Greene County

  • Perform residential well sampling

  • Complete periodic written reflections to tie classroom, laboratory, field, and community service experiences together
