We understand that making curricular revisions to include service-learning may appear difficult and time consuming, but studies have shown service-learning provides an experiential-based opportunity that helps some students learn more effectively. Students also get a feel for future career skills to give them a competitive edge in their job.
Please contact our office to arrange for individual or group consultation on creating or revising a service-learning option.
