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.
