The Service Learning initiative seeks to expand opportunities to apply classroom knowledge in meeting the social needs of the community in a broader quest for the common good.This experiential approach to learning that can be implemented in courses that incorporate:

  • Leadership development
  • Civic literacy
  • The development of critical thinking as it relates to society

Service Learning, whether through short or long-term community service projects, affords students the opportunity to integrate theory into practice, apply practical skills, clarify values, and raise consciousness about community issues.


We envision a vibrant campus that is proactively engaged in our local community and greater society.


We expand opportunities for curricular and co-curricular learning that strive to transform scholarship and knowledge into wisdom and active service.


Service Learning Initiative Committee is committed to:

  • Meeting the social needs and the common good of the local, national, and global community through volunteerism and classroom learning.
  • Creating vibrant, committed, compassionate, and collaborative engagement with our world (locally, nationally and globally).
  • Integrating the university culture of service that is mutually beneficial for both student and community growth.


Service Learning Initiative Committee will:

  1. Develop a culture of service, which seamlessly integrates the broader community’s needs with curricular and co-curricular activities.
  2. Maximize opportunities to engage in scholarship using classroom learning to put theory into practice through collaborative societal problem solving.
  3. Develop activities that enhance growth and learning through service to benefit our surrounding community as well as the global community of which we are all a part.
