Office of Service Learning

The Office of Service Learning provides experiential learning opportunities by working alongside our faculty and community partners to integrate service-learning opportunities into select course curriculum. We work to support our community partner’s vision and provide practical course-related experience for students. Developing programs that serve both our faculty, students and community partners to promote a mutually beneficial partnership.

Service-learning refers to a type of curriculum that intentionally integrates learning with community service in a credit-bearing academic course. Students participate in an authentic service activity, which meets needs identified by the community (designed within the framework of a mutually beneficial relationship) and then they critically reflect on that activity. Thus, students gain a deep understanding of course content, a commitment to socially responsible citizenship and develop skills and understanding needed to contribute to civic well-being.
