What is Service Learning?

Service learning is a type of experiential learning that engages students in service within the community as an integrated aspect of a course.  Students participate in an organized service activity and reflect on that activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline and an enhanced sense of personal values and civic responsibility.
