What is Service Learning?

Service Learning combines community service with classroom instruction or student club activities, focusing on critical, reflective thinking and civic responsibility to engage students. Service Learning programs involve students in activities that address local needs while developing their academic or professional skills and commitment to their community.

Service Learning favors active and collaborative learning, rewards student effort and engagement, creates opportunities to know professors and faculty advisors better, and to experience possible work situations. In Service Learning, the student helps build a better community and the community helps the student be a better and more knowledgeable professional. For faculty, Service Learning is a rewarding opportunity to serve the student better, to grow as an instructor, and to be in touch with what is important for younger generations. In Service Learning we all gain.
