What is Service Learning?
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.
Through reflective activities, students enhance their understanding of course content, learn to apply academic training to solve real-world problems, and develop a sense of civic responsibility.
Spring 2017 Service Learning Course information now available!
Community Partner Breakfast
The annual Partner Breakfast brought together UT Arlington Faculty and Staff with regional Non-Profit Community Partners and Agencies, providing a unique opportunity for collaboration in service learning and service projects within UT Arlington academic courses and campus programs. Thank you to our guest speaker, Dr. Charla Markham-Shaw, Chair of the Department of Communication. Her faculty and student service learning success stories were an inspiration to all who attended.
Mark your calendar for next year's Partner Breakfast - Friday, January 26, 2018 in the Bluebonnet Ballroom at the E.H. Hereford University Center.
