ADCL 5492 - Community Outreach II

This 1 credit hour course will run both semesters of the first year of the dental curriculum and will provide students with the opportunity to serve the oral health needs of the local community and the state in a variety of ways and venues. In the first year the students will be expected to accrue a minimum of 20 hours of public service and will receive 1 credit hour. (See under course requirements to follow) What is Community Service? In general, community service is any unpaid/uncompensated volunteer effort that benefits the community and/or special populations. It implies a selfless act of kindness that helps those less fortunate, but can also be interpreted as being for the “Higher Good”, that is, the service provided goes beyond the selfish needs, desires or interests of the individual who performs it. Community service could, for example, benefit the environment or homeless pets. It is not limited to populations of people. Community service is NOT merely work without pay. Students should check with the course director to identify the parameters for their community service requirements.
