Service Learning

In its most basic form, Service-learning is an instructional approach that draws explicit connections between classroom learning and immediate issues in the community by creating opportunities for students to be active in community-based service or research as part of a course. Faculty members work with the Office of Community Engagement and New Student Programs and a community-based organization or non-profit to create an in-class experience that relates to a particular service project that students within that course will partake in. Reflection is a large part of the educational process of volunteer work.

If you are a faculty member interested in incorporating service into your course or would like to have someone from our office speak to students about the important service opportunities available to them, please email
