What is Service-Learning? 

Through this program, students apply knowledge and skills learned through academic study to meaningful service within the greater community. While participating in Service-Learning, students reflect upon and analyze their service experience as it reciprocally applies to their academic and career development.

Service-Learning benefits students by: 

  • Enhancing understanding of academic curriculum through hands-on experience
  • Providing diverse and practical experiences  
  • Encouraging community involvement
  • Fostering civic responsibility
  • Raising awareness of social justice issues
  • Providing career-exploration opportunities
  • Strengthening transferable skills
