Service Learning

Service-learning is an exciting teaching strategy that enriches the curriculum by combining meaningful community service with academic learning. Service-learning provides “real-life” experiences by linking students with local communities and service providers. Reflection and reciprocity are key concepts of service-learning.

For instructors who are thinking of incorporating service-learning into their course curriculum, or those who just want to know more about this teaching and research method, please do not hesitate to contact Professor Isolde Mueller, Faculty Liaison for Service-Learning at 308-4142.
