What is Service Learning?

View from JCSU


Service-Learning is a specially designed model of experiential-learning in which students engage in meaningful activities that address a community-identified social issue, problem, or need. The Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement facilitates relationships between Faculty and community organizations for the purpose of providing structured experiences outside of the classroom that align with the curricular learning taking place inside the classroom. It is through the integration of an academically rigorous model of learning that reflection assists the student in achieving learning outcomes that help encourage civic responsibility.
