Bear Service

 Bear Service is:

A set of programs and reciprocal partnerships connecting the Missouri State community with meaningful service opportunities.  We organize Bear Service into three main parts: Bear Service Days, which are one-time large days of service; the Bear Service Team, which is a student organization dedicated to service-learning; and the exploration of service in Springfield, MO through GivePulse.  Bear Service promotes positive social change through the following service-learning elements:

  • Education - The first goal is for us to learn more about the issue of focus, the community agency/learning partner, and our goals for making a positive difference.
  • Engagement – These are experiential learning opportunities. The more we engage with each other and our neighbors, the more we will learn about ourselves and the expertise in the community.
  • Reflection – Structured reflection encourages us to learn more about ourselves and our communities. Thinking critically about your service experience is a key step toward active citizenship
