Service learning connects theory (academic course content) to practice (community project) for student academic and professional development. Through meaningful community service project students learn and reflect on community concerns related to their course topic. Students work alongside community partners to address local concerns.
Through guided reflective activities, students connect theory with practice to better understand the role of community to address social concerns. Service learning projects provide reciprocal benefits to enhance student knowledge and address the needs of a community organization to increase their capacity to serve.
