Service-Learning

Introduction

Service-Learning is a pedagogical strategy that allows students to apply discipline-based knowledge to authentic and practical situations beyond the classroom. It integrates community service, academic learning, and civic engagement. Students provide valuable community service while at the same time reinforcing the theories, attitudes, and values of a course. The sites below provide information on using Service-Learning in many disciplines.
