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

The goal of Service Learning is for students to gain a greater understanding of content knowledge while becoming socially embedded citizens.
