What is Service Learning?
Service learning combines community service with classroom instruction, focusing on critical, reflective thinking as well as personal and civic responsibility. Service learning programs involve students in activities that address local needs while developing their academic skills and commitment to their community.
How Service Learning works:
- Have a conversation with your faculty member about participating in Service Learning.
- The 20 hour minimum has been removed. Ask your faculty member about the number of hours now required for their course to earn points/extra credit/etc.
- All required forms, documentation, etc. must be received by the Office of the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs prior to May 1 (Spring) / December 1 (Fall)
- Visit the Student Resources page to complete the registration process.
Service Learning Fairs
Community partners attend this event to provide information of opportunities available to the students and assist the students with signing up for events. Our Fall 2019 Volunteer Fair was a great success. We hosted over 40 agencies and we look to make the next event even better. Check back often for new opportunities.
Service Learning across the Nation
More than 4 million college students across the nation participate in Service Learning. This number increases every year because more students are finding that Service Learning enhances their career and way of life.
