Service Learning integrates academic coursework with service to the community. Students engage in classroom activities and discussions and perform local service projects related to their academic coursework. More than a volunteering opportunity, service learning furthers educational goals while promoting civic responsibility. From focused instruction and concept discussions with classmates to practical, real-world application, coupled with reflection and assessment, the learning process becomes a much richer and more well-rounded experience.
