Here’s an overview of the steps involved in the CSL program. Our team will support you and answer your questions or concerns throughout the process.
Following an initial meeting with a community partner, the placement officer identifies courses that fit with the placements offered by the organization.
The placement officer reviews the placement description to ensure that it fits with the learning objectives set out by the professor.
The placements are then presented for the professor to review and accept or decline.
At the beginning of each term, the placement officer conducts a class presentation on the CSL program and CSL placements.
Placement registration begins on a pre-determined date. Students have approximately three days to apply for placements (the placement officer will share these dates with you).
Contact and meeting with supervisor
Students are responsible for contacting their community partner supervisor. The supervisor has three days to respond. Through this exchange, a meeting (which can include training) should be set up, during which the supervisor and the student are encouraged to clarify their expectations.
Approval of hours and completion of evaluation
After 30 hours of work during the term, the supervisor reviews and approves the student’s timesheet and completes a brief evaluation of the student’s performance.
