Everybody Wins with Engaged Learning
"Service-learning is a credit-bearing, educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs, and reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of the course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility."
- excerpted from "A Service Learning Curriculum for Faculty" by Robert Bringle and Julie Hatcher
The bottom line: "Service-Learning = Service + Learning"
Service-learning is Win-Win-Win!
Over 7,000 hours of service have been logged to date!
