International Service Learning

What is service-learning?

Service-learning is defined as an integrative experience through which learners engage in thoughtfully organized service in response to a community identified need.  Experiences are designed to be a mutually-beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources accomplished by service and reflection.  Learning outcomes promote academic and civic engagement and are focused on holistic learner development and community well-being.  Service-learning can be credit bearing or non-credit bearing.
