Service Learning

Do you want to change the world? Great things start small, and you can be an architect of change that you want to see in our world. Step up and take a Service Learning Course where you contribute real solutions for the needs of community partners while you share your experiences in the classroom!

Service Learning can happen at any time during your academic career. It can be especially valuable for first year and sophomore students as a way to build skills employers seek as a stepping stone to internships as a junior or senior.
