Empowering the Future with Service Learning

Our Mission for Transformative Education

Service learning expands student perspectives, transforming their lives and empowering them to make a positive difference in their communities. The CSL works with faculty to incorporate a service learning component into their coursework, whereby students work in reciprocity with a nonprofit agency on a project related to what they're learning in the classroom. This experience benefits both the student and the community and prepares compassionate leaders committed to creating a more just and equitable world.
