What is service learning?

Service learning is the integration of service or community engagement experiences into academic courses.  It benefits all parties involved: students, faculty and institutions of higher education and community partners and their constituents.  Students and faculty have the chance to apply and deepen their understanding of class concepts, learn about social justice, and examine the relevance of class topics in the real world.  Community partners can build capacity, strengthen programs, and gain new energy and creativity from student volunteers.
