Service learning is an experiential teaching method used to link course content to real-life experiences that focus on a community need or social justice issue. Simply put, service learning helps students gain knowledge by tackling problems faced in their community. Students taking service learning courses are required to complete a designated amount of volunteer service hours (typically 10-20 hours) per semester with a local, not-for-profit community partner. Students integrate their service experiences with their coursework through ongoing reflection and class assignments.
