Service learning emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection. It also encourages a strong sense of community, civic engagement and personal responsibility.
Service learning goes beyond service projects. It offers students opportunities to better understand the purpose and value of their efforts through the practical experience of serving in the community. It also offers opportunities for students to develop, practice and reflect on social competencies. Service learning contributes to welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments by providing opportunities for students and staff to work together on common causes.
