Center for Urban Population Health

Service Learning

The primary purpose of the Center for Urban Population Health (CUPH) and its service learning opportunities is to provide a framework for students to gain direct, supervised volunteer experience in population health research projects.

In addition to gaining valuable experience in population health research, students receive:

  • Direct supervision from a CUPH staff person/researcher.
  • Opportunities to collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team of Center scientists around population health issues.
  • Hands-on learning in their area of interest.
  • Recognition of contributions in Center communications (such as website, annual report, etc.).
  • Notice of community and professional development opportunities.
  • Access to library resources across institutions.
  • Letter of recommendation upon satisfactory completion of service learning opportunity.
  • Possible course credit (upon approval from school administrators).

Service learning opportunities are based on availability of projects.
