Service-Learning Courses

A service-learning course combines teaching and community engagement.  A service-learning course provides an opportunity for students, faculty members, and community partners to engage in organized service activities that address community-identified needs.  The experience pushes you to reflect on service activities to gain a further understanding of the curricular content, enhance your personal values, and increase your social responsibility.
