What is Service-Learning?

Learn, act, reflect, integrate and begin again - this is service-learning. Service-learning links what is being learned in the classroom to service experiences centered on a community need or issue. Through reflection activities students are given the opportunity to understand what was learned and experienced, and how the community was benefited.

Service-learning is a direct expression of the CI mission and a critical component of the curriculum. Service-learning courses equip students with the knowledge and experience necessary to transform them into future leaders and socially-conscious citizens. Below are resources available to students enrolled in a service-learning course.
