Community-Engaged Teaching

  • Academic Service-Learning connects the concepts in the classroom to service experiences in the community. Service-learning helps prepare students for a lifetime of civic engagement and leadership. In addition, service-learning is an important learning tool that allows them to apply the concepts, theories and other material covered in class. The community becomes a text for the class and is as critical to “read” as other textbooks.
