Some students at the University of Kansas are finding that class assignments include community service.

About 3,700 students are enrolled in classes that require service work. For example, students in a business class have been assigned to fill out tax forms for victims of natural disasters, such as the Greensburg tornado.

The so-called "service learning" classes are offered across several disciplines at the university.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Spanish and Portuguese classes have translated legal documents for Spanish-speaking residents. And students in an environmental journalism course recently installed solar panels in a Habitat for Humanity house.
