The Office of Service Learning promotes, organizes, and assists campus outreach initiatives by working with individual students, groups, and academic or social organizations who wish to embrace learning through service. Our goals are to foster the incorporation of community service into all areas of academic study, serve all students who wishes to expand their education with effective experiences in the community, and encourage personal development of students through hands on experiences. Our ambition is for students to discover their strengths and leadership potential, build lasting relationships with peers, staff and faculty, and experience leadership in action. These goals can be reached through students’ desire to make a difference in the world and their intention to successfully link reflection of service to academic learning and development. Service learning is an educational philosophy where students learn more about a subject through hands-on service to the community than through mere lecture.
