>The Community Service Learning project has replaced the course Midterm project. In the past students spent at least 12 hours on their Midterm project. By replacing that with community service learning, all the effort and learning benefits the community as well as the student.
Many transfer colleges are now requiring or requesting the Community Service Learning credit which will be added to your transcript when you successfully complete your project. See the DeAnza Course Catalog for details – CIS2 is listed as one of the courses participating in the Civic Engagement program.
All the projects are online. Once the initial contact and coordination are established, you can do the project work on your own schedule – just like the rest of the course work for CIS.
