Community-engaged Teaching and Research
"Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities." - Corporation for National and Community Service
Center staff offer resources and support to faculty and student leaders implementing service-learning into their courses and programs. From course development to the Service-Learning Scholars, the Center works to enhance and grow GW service-learning in the District and around the world. In addition, the Center works to highlight the Engaged Scholarship of faculty and students.
GW offers more than 45 service-learning classes, from introductory courses to capstones, that extend classroom learning into the community through meaningful, challenging service.
