An Integral Part of the Student Experience
Service-Learning is a teaching methodology that combines three key concepts to enhance student learning and social responsibility.
- Academic instruction
- Meaningful service
- Critical reflective thinking
Because of its particular emphasis on students' civic development; use of ongoing, structured reflection; and sustained, reciprocal partnerships between faculty and community partners, service-learning differs significantly from other forms of Community Engagement such as volunteerism, internships, or practicums.
