Service-Learning, a subset of service-engagement, is a course-based, credit-bearing educational experience in which students:

  • Participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs;
  • Use knowledge and skills directly related to a course or discipline; and
  • Reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain
    • further understanding of course content,
    • a broader appreciation of the discipline, and
    • an enhanced sense of personal values and civic responsibility.
