Service Learning

Career Coach buttonService learning programs foster the College's engagement within the larger community and promote leadership, social and civic responsibility and student involvement as integral aspects of college education.

Students, faculty and community partners and agencies come together to form experiential education characterized by student participation in an organized service activity that combines:

  • Academic study
  • Community service
  • Reflection

Volunteering vs. Service Learning

Volunteering is usually extracurricular. Your participation is strictly community service and has no connection to classroom instruction.

Service Learning is a co-curricular instructional strategy. As a service learning student, you have the opportunity to think critically about your educational experience and examine your service in greater context.
