Service-learning experiences regularly occur in real-world workplaces. These opportunities help students in their selection of a major or career choice. They also engage in core career readiness skills (like critical thinking, collaboration and professionalism), and provides students with meaningful hands-on experiences with a learning site partner in our community.


We achieve this purpose by providing resources that support students, faculty and community in developing meaningful experiences.
