Academic Service Learning is an educational experience based upon a collaborative partnership between the university and the community. “Learning by doing” enables students to apply academic knowledge and critical thinking skills to meet genuine community needs. Through reflection and assessment, students gain deeper understanding of course content and the importance of civic engagement.
Placed at numerous sites throughout the city for a variety of courses, students spend 20 or 40 hours (depending on the class) completing their service throughout the semester. For more information, please contact Bridget Smith.

Service project information is subject to change, and this document will be updated as soon as new courses are approved. This document is meant to help students in planning as much as is possible, but we don't always know the details of a project in advance. Please check back later for more info, or contact the faculty of record or email@example.com for more info on a particular class.
Fall 2020: all service learning courses will have a virtual/indirect service option or will focus on community-engaged learning. We are not able to update this table with those changes, but we are working with our community partners and faculty to ensure that all students will have access to complete their service learning no matter where you are.
