What is Service Learning?

"Service-learning incorporates community work into the curriculum, giving students real-world learning experiences that enhance their academic learning while providing a tangible benefit for the community." — Campus Compact

At CCBC, we see service-learning as a win-win situation where students meet community needs, and their experiences with the community organizations build student knowledge that relates to course curriculum.

Service learning encompasses three main components:
  1. Service
  2. Curricular connection
  3. Reflection

Serve your community

Are you a student or faculty interested in locating a community organization where you can participate in Service-Learning activities? CCBC partners with numerous organizations that serve a variety of community needs.
