Service-learning refers to educational experiences that link academic course work with efforts to meet a community need. This kind of learning promotes:

  • knowledge of course concepts and application of disciplinary material
  • understanding of the field of study in a broader context
  • a sense of civic responsibility.

The service-learning program serves to link teachers and learners to non-profit organizations with identified needs. We conduct workshops for faculty, provide support materials, and play the role of "matchmaker," connecting faculty to service organizations whose needs students may address as a part of their educational experience.
