Requirement for Teacher Candidates

All certification teacher candidates at Rhode Island College are required to complete 25 hours of community service one semester prior to student teaching. This requirement reflects the belief that a teacher is a professional person following a calling. The community service requirement offers prospective teachers an opportunity to serve others in the pursuit of learning.
Please note that completion of 25 hours of community service is not a requirement for application and acceptance into an education program rather, it is a requirement for student teaching. For information on the requirement, please review the Community Service Adobe PDFHandbook and FAQ's.

To enter your community service experience, use this survey form.
