"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

Nashman 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 Nashman Center works to enhance and grow GW service-learning in the District and around the world. In addition, the Nashman Center works to highlight the Engaged Scholarship of faculty and students.

GW offers more than 70 service-learning classes, from introductory courses to capstones, that extend classroom learning into the community through meaningful, challenging service.
