The Center for Service Learning would like to welcome students on embarking on service learning this semester. We are delighted to have you be a part of this exciting learning endeavor. We believe that this experience will be rewarding and will present you with the opportunity to learn more about yourself and the communities that surround you. In order to create the best possible learning experience for you, the Center for Service is responsible for matching students with volunteer agencies that will enhance course objectives and that might also match your interests and/or major. You will be required to fulfill specific hours of community service and participate in some form of reflection for which you will receive a grade.
Center for Service Learning Mission:
The mission of the Center for Service Learning office is to assist instructors in creating learning opportunities that take the students out of the traditional classroom and involve them in experiential learning in the community. This is achieved by linking subject matter and service in the community with the goal of commitment to civic engagement.
Service learning definition:
“Service learning combines service objectives with learning objectives with the intent that the activity changes both the recipient and the provider of the service. This is accomplished by combining service tasks with structured opportunities that link the tasks of self-reflection, self-discovery and the acquisition and comprehension of values, skills and knowledge content.”
