Service-learning is a teaching and learning method that connects meaningful community service with academic instruction through guided reflection. It engages students in meaningful service to their schools and communities. Applying academic skills to solving real-world issues, linking established learning objectives with genuine needs, students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students lead the process with faculty coordinators and site supervisors addressing concerns such as hunger, homelessness, sustainability, and diversity.
