The Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement will be starting to offer several Service-Learning Mini-Grants each semester starting Spring 2019. Service-Learning Mini-Grants are designed to support faculty to create, enhance, or participate in service-learning instruction or scholarship.
Service-Learning is a specially designed model of experiential-learning which combines service at a community organization with intentional learning outcomes achieved through critical, reflective thinking. Hence, equal emphasis is placed on both the service and the learning (service-learning). Essential components of service learning include: critical reflection, reciprocity, collaboration, and evaluation.
