Public Service Scholar Senior Portfolio
Senior Portfolios consist of the following information:
- Filling out the portfolio form.
- Photos of you engaged in a service activity.
- A form of creative expression to reflect on your experiences while enrolled in BPSS that is more than a general description. Critically examine your experiences by incorporating a response to the following prompts which reflect the four aims of the program:
- How has your BPSS experience challenged you to increase the breadth and depth of their involvement in NC communities and beyond?
- How has (or has not) your experience fostered connections between the University, its students and the community?
- Has your concept of service changed in understanding to encompass more than direct volunteering? Why or why not?
- What are two experiences (one at the beginning of the program and one towards the end) that demonstrate how your capacity for engaging in your community in meaningful ways has developed.
Examples of how you can creatively address the above four prompts:
- Creative writing piece
- Art piece
- Photo essay
- Critical analysis
- Letter to yourself at the beginning of the program
All creative forms of expression must include a narrative, to explain your perspective and point of view of the above listed prompts about the four aims of the program.
If you have questions or need further clarification, please send a message to email@example.com.
Photographs and Photo Release Forms
Students must submit three photographs that signify an aspect(s) of their service. At least one of the three photos should be a picture of you alone. A signed photo release form is required for every identifiable person in the photographs. If the photograph(s) was taken abroad, there is no need for a photo release.

in person to Ryan Nilsen at the Carolina Center for Public Service office in the Student Union #3514, mailed to
