What is Service-Learning?

“Service-learning is a philosophy of experiential learning [integrated into and enhancing academic curriculum] in which students participate in community service not only to meet the needs of the community, but also to develop their critical thinking skills, commitment to values, and skills for effective citizenship.”     Mintz & Liu, 1994

 

The Service-Learning Agreement is designed to:

q      Assist the student and site/school in understanding the learning objectives for the course.

q      Clarify the activities in which the student will be involved in the site/school in relation to the learning objectives.

q      Insure that both the student and the site/school are aware of the responsibilities as partners in this service-learning project.
