What is Service-Learning?

Service-learning is a “for-credit” educational experience. Learning through service enables students to apply academic knowledge and critical thinking skills to meet genuine community needs. Faculty-guided reflection and assessment, combined with community partner enrichment, helps students gain a deeper understanding of course content, develop their sense of self-efficacy, and build their future as active citizens.

Office of Leadership and Community Engagement provides resources to help faculty, students and community partners build meaningful, constructive, rewarding service-learning projects.

These resources include:

  • Information on Community Partners
  • Service-Learning Facilitators
  • Help selecting appropriate partners and developing syllabi

For their service-learning project students in the Building Materials and System course, taught by Dr. Seonghoon Kim, participate in building a home for Habitat for Humanity.
