Service Learning

Service learning programs foster the College's engagement within the larger community. Service learning promotes leadership, social and civic responsibility and student involvement as part of a college education.

Students, faculty and community partners and agencies come together to form an experiential learning experience. Students participate 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. In this environment you have the freedom to think critically about your education and examine your service in greater context.
