Our definition of Service-Learning

Service-Learning (sometimes referred to as community based or community engaged learning) is an innovative pedagogical approach that integrates meaningful community service or engagement into the curriculum and offers students academic credit for the learning that derives from active engagement within community and work on a real world problem.  Reflection and experiential learning strategies underpin the learning process and the service is link to the academic discipline.

Service-learning brings together students, academics and the community whereby all become teaching resources, problem solvers and partners.  In addition to enhancing academic and real world learning, the overall purpose of service learning is to instill in students a sense of civic engagement and responsibility and work towards positive social change within society.
