Service Learning

Merry Mayer

Service Learning Coordinator
​​​Courses that incorporate Service Learning either require or provide students with the opportunity to serve the community in some way and then tie that experience to course concepts.

Service Learning courses:       

  • Will engage students with real world problems
  • Allow students to learn more about their community
  • Enable students to learn actively, not just through lecture or in class
  • Foster relationships with fellow students, faculty and outside professionals
  • Help students develop career-related skills, such as working as a member of a team, communicating effectively and solving problems ​
