We connect classrooms and communities

Service-learning is an educational experience designed to match your academic goals and personal interests while meeting community and university needs. Volunteering your time and talents with nonprofit organizations — there are hundreds to choose from — also helps you enhance communication skills, critical thinking and social awareness.

Inspired by their experiences serving, many students go beyond the minimum required hours for graduating (40 hours if you transferred in as an upper level student / 80 hours if you started as a freshman/sophomore). With our office’s guidance, you learn to serve and serve to learn.
