If you’re like most students, you probably found us through an instructor or advisor. Don’t worry! While service learning may seem daunting at first, it’s actually very simple.
What Is Service-Learning?
Service-learning combines the best of active learning and citizenship by connecting course content with service projects that help the community. It is a powerful way of understanding course material by learning from experience. A service-learning course can help:
- Develop personal and social responsibility
- Develop leadership ability and critical thinking skills
- Improve your knowledge of academic subjects
- Expand your world view
- Develop skills for future employment
Service learning is all about connecting what you’re learning in class to the real world. It helps you find relevance in the material you’re learning, and exposes you to real-life situations to enhance your understanding. We hope you’ll find that the four walls that separate the classroom outside of college suddenly become less daunting after you engage in service learning project.
