Creating the campus community service council : an exercise in organizational development : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
This thesis project created a Campus Community Service Council (CCSC) for the Ball State University campus. This council is a result of a need on campus for a forum for students to discuss service. The purposes of the council are: to organize members of organizations who participate in service activities into one forum, to educate the campus on the value of service experiences, to involve campus organizations in service experiences, to review grant and award applications related to community service, and to organize an annual campus-wide service project. Research was done by contacting the member institutions of the Indiana Campus Compact, an statewide organization that promotes service and service learning on college and university campuses in Indiana. My research indicated that this council, the CCSC, was one of the first of it's kind in the state.A constitution for the organization was created and the first two regular meetings were planned and implemented. An advisor for the organization has been named and two co-chairs have been selected. The CCSC has plans for full operation beginning in the spring semester of 1997.
