National Service Members and Alum

Through a special partnership between UM, NLA, and the Corporation for National and Community Service, this program also accommodates full-time national service members (AmeriCorps, NCCC and VISTA) through online coursework in order to obtain the NLA credential.

Learning By Giving

Through the lens of philanthropy and social entrepreneurship, enrolled UM students participating in UM’s Franke Global Leadership Initiative can select to participate in COMX 191S Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship, a Franke GLI freshman seminar, where they will study and experience social responsibility and community building as a means to address and resolve some of the big problems facing society. The University of Montana's Office for Civic Engagement and Department of Communication Studies partners with the Learning By Giving Foundation to provide students with an experiential learning opportunity in grant making specifically designed for nonprofit organizations serving Missoula County residents.
