Requirement for Teacher Candidates

All undergraduate certification teacher candidates at Rhode Island College are required to complete a minimum of 25 hours of community service 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 Handbook and FAQ's​.​

To enter your community service experience, Chalk and Wire will make the form available on your Dashboard. See the Office of Partnerships and Placements student teaching requirements for your due date.​​
