Service Learning

What is service learning?
Service learning is active learning in which students further their understanding of course content by

  • reflecting on a service activities/project(s) to gain deeper knowledge , a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility and
  •  participating  in organized service activities/project(s) that meet needs identified by the community

Why should you participate in service learning classes?
In a nutshell, you have an opportunity to learn more while helping others!

Service learning courses provide an opportunity to put the knowledge that students learn in class into action.  Learning by doing, followed by reflection often leads to a deeper understanding of the class subject matter.  Service learning also allows faculty and students to work in partnership to make positive contributions to our local and global communities by addressing community interests and needs.
