Student Forms

Students are required to complete the following four forms, which are designed to cover the activities of HSU students enrolled in Service Learning or Academic Internship courses with community partners for course credit. Students should consult with their faculty before filling out these forms. All four Student Risk Documents are turned in to your faculty supervising your Service Learning or Academic Internship experience for course credit.

Faculty Forms 

Faculty are encouraged to begin the process by contacting the Center for Community Based Learning (CCBL) at least one semester prior to course offering. ALL off campus/non HSU program sites where students will be in service are required to have Learning Site Agreement paperwork in place BEFORE students begin service at the location. Currently - over 300 hundred sites already have these agreements in place through existing partnerships with Humboldt State University.  Please contact us for a current list of approved sites or check your college pagelet on the faculty portal.

Establishing a New Site:

To establish a new Learning Site / community partner not on the current “approved” list, faculty will need to initiate the process by completing the Faculty Request for New Service Learning & Academic Internship Learning Site (Information Form - Exhibit A), and sending as an email attachment to Stacy Becker at or deliver to the Center for Community Based Learning (CCBL), Gist Hall Room 122.  

Example: Learning Site Agreement

Additional Information

The Addendum to the Student Learning Plan for Service Learning & Academic Internship Courses Intellectual Property with For Profit & Non-Profit Organizations form can be used in circumstances in which a student from an Academic Internship or Service Learning Course creates a product or deliverable, and shares the intellectual property with a Learning Site/Community Partner.
