INTRODUCING: S4 @ The Beach!

Now on a computer, smart phone, or iPAD near you, a new and improved online service-learning database.

In Fall 2016 CSULB began piloting S4 @ The Beach to facilitate all aspects of the service-learning process. S4 @ The Beach is an online data management system that tracks our campus' community engagement efforts.

If you are enrolled in a service-learning course, use your campus ID and password to log into S4 @ The Beach https://app.calstates4.com/csulb

What is Service-Learning?
Service learning is a method of teaching that combines classroom instruction with meaningful community service, giving students real-world learning experiences that enhance their academic learning while providing a tangible benefit for the community. This form of learning emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection while encouraging a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility.
