Student Service Learning Agreement

In addition to securing signed agreements with community partners, it is important to establish written service learning agreements with each student involved the service learning program.  These agreements clearly articulate the expectations of both the student and facilitator for the service learning program.  The agreement also provides an additional opportunity for students to become familiar with important program policies and procedures concerning topics such as risk management and crisis response.

Whenever students are given time to complete the service learning agreement, this may also be a good time to have them sign the GVSU Photo Release Form.  This form is essential if pictures of service are to be used for documentation and promotional purposes. 

"I give permission to Grand Valley State University (GVSU) to use, without charge and without reservation, my likeness in any medium and for any lawful purpose, including promoting the institution, its programs and services. I waive any rights of action I may have and release GVSU and its licensees from any and all claims I may have arising from use of my likeness, including any rights to sue for defamation or violation of my rights of privacy or publicity.

(This agreement fully represents all terms and considerations and no other statements, conditions, or promises are made in conjunction with this release form)."
