Community Service-Learning

Community Service-Learning promotes positive social change by providing reflective experiential opportunities with diverse community partners. Community Service-Learning is a method of teaching where students learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully organized community service. Faculty members work with community-based organizations to create a service experience that relates to the course of study. There are three major components to Community Service-Learning:

Academic    Service    Reflection   
The project/service
experience has a direct
connection to the
academic content of a
particular course and is
rooted in the discipline in which the course is offered.
Students engage in
community-based learning
activities that meet an
identified community need, usually designed in close
partnership with a
community organization.
Students have structured
opportunities to reflect on their experience and how the service connects to course content, personal
values and civic
responsibility.
