Service Learning is defined by the American Association of Higher Education as a method under which students learn and develop through thoughtfully organized service that:
A service learning course will involve students partnering with a community-based organization or group. The students will provide service to meet a need identified by the community. In this setting, "community organization or group" means a non-profit agency, educational institution, group of people with a common identity, or for-profit agency when the primary purpose is providing a significant public service. The service learning experience will help bring classroom material and discussion to life by giving students a real environment in which to apply course concepts.
To find a service learning course, students should review the course schedule and look for courses designated with a "SL." Service learning course offerings vary each semester, please see http://www.walsh.edu/service-learning-courses for the most current list. If you have questions, please contact the Director of Service Learning.
