For Students

At Roger Williams University all students are required to engage in a significant community engaged learning experience prior to graduation in order to satisfy the Feinstein Service Learning (FSL) requirement.

Full description and instructions

  • Authorized drivers are sometimes needed to drive for course engaged projects when visiting a community partner for a site visit.  
  • Students must have a current driver license and be at least 20 years old.  
  • An online training must be completed to drive a 7-passenger van.  To drive a vehicle larger than the 7-passenger van, you must also schedule and complete a road test through public safety.  
  • Please plan accordingly as this process can take a few weeks to process and approve. 

All info pertaining to the driver authorization and RWU motor vehicle policy can be found here.

Students who receive a federal work-study award may earn their awards in the community at non-profit agencies. Some of the agencies where our students have worked in the past include the Bristol Animal Shelter, Audubon Society of RI, Habitat for Humanity, Providence Police Department, Bristol/Warren School District, Coggeshall Farm Museum, Linden Place Museum and Blithewold Gardens and Arboretum

Voting laws and procedures vary from state to state.  Navigating these can be difficult for anyone, but attending college in a different town or state from your home can make things more complicated.  HERE you will find resources that we believe will make your participation easier.

Under Construction!

Our new community engagement portal, Give Pulse, will launch in summer 2022.  Give Pulse will list service opportunities and provide direct access to the local non-profit community.  

Give Pulse is also the home of the Feinstein Service Learning Graduation Requirement, providing the processing for submitting proposals and final artifacts.  

More information will be sent to all RWU students in summer 2022 via email.
