About Us


We envision each undergraduate and graduate student having access to a wide range of opportunities to participate in community-based learning through service-learning courses, co-ops and internships, learning communities, research experiences, public service, study abroad/away, and co-curricular experiences including community service, immersion experiences, civic leadership programs, and student organizations focused on service.

We support faculty and staff members, and programs and departments across academic and student affairs, to infuse best practices in service-learning, community service, and civic engagement experiences.

We engage community partners to harness the resources of BGSU, our students' creativity and energy, and the expertise and knowledge creation power of our faculty and staff members.  We help build strong communities, and find solutions to critical social issues, extending our identity as a key community partner inour region, state, and nation.


The Office of Service-Learning provides leadership for the development of high impact curricular and co-curricular service-learning and civic engagement experiences that challenge students to be reflective and integrative learners.  Our program prepares our graduates to engage others actively and effectively as well-informed and engaged citizens and civcally minded professionals in a multicultural, global, and democratic society.
