What is a service-learning course?

A service-learning course combines teaching and community involvement within an academic setting. 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 allows participants a chance to reflect on the service activity to gain a further understanding of curricular content, as well as enhance their sense of personal values and civic responsibility.


Who benefits from service-learning?

  • Gain additional human resources needed to achieve organizational goals
  • Inject new energy, enthusiasm, and perspectives into the organization's work
  • Increase public awareness of key issues
