2015 - 2016 Combined Catalogs of the Colleges

Service Learning

Service Learning combines academic instruction with active community service, utilizing critical, reflective thinking to examine the world around you and your civic responsibilities. It is a mutually beneficial partnership, allowing you to apply what you have learned in the classroom into the real world while developing new skills in a service position in the community. You get a chance to improve your critical thinking skills, explore career possibilities, and make a difference by meeting community needs and increasing community support. The colleges offer you an opportunity to serve at a wide variety of charitable and social agencies. There are opportunities in local schools, child care centers, hospitals, and community-based organizations for students to both learn and serve through this hands-on approach.
