Service Learning

Service-Learning Nursing Students Diabetes Walk Fall 2013PURPOSE
Academic service learning at SLCC is nationally recognized for best practices in faculty development, student engagement, and community partner development. The program is fully institutionalized, providing an infrastructure that facilitates the involvement of all stakeholders in a collaborative learning process.

Service learning is a method of teaching and learning that integrates volunteer opportunities, critical reflective thinking, and partnerships with nonprofit organizations into academic coursework. This method addresses both course learning outcomes and community-identified needs. Service learning makes course content relevant and directly applicable to the real world.

Designated Service Learning Classes
SLCC has designated service learning classes in a wide variety of disciplines, from Math to English, Nursing to History.  Find a class that's right for you and take your learning beyond the classroom!.

Service Learning Student Project Fund Request for Proposal
The Service Learning Student Project Fund (SLSPF) is designated for students enrolled in designated service learning classes and select other programs, as managed by the Thayne Center for Service & Learning. These students may request funding to offset costs directly related to their service learning projects. We encourage students to be creative when planning a project. Explore the wide range of possibilities. Think big and submit a proposal now.  Once projects are complete, students will also need to complete a final report.
