Service Learning is a special learning experience that combines participation in community projects with the curriculum in academic courses. Here at UC, the Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement provides opportunities for students to get involved and learn beyond the classroom. They also provide resources for students as well as faculty and staff and community partners to participate in service learning!
The Center uses service learning for our first year students who are participating in the Learning Communities program. Each Spring, our Learning Communities work on a Better Place Project. This gives students an opportunity to choose a social issue or explore challenges that are pertinent to the LC student's interests. Check out Spring 2012 Better Place Projects now!
