Service-Learning Courses


All students are required to take one service-learning course while at Walsh. This aligns with the Walsh mission of developing students to be leaders in service to others.

Service-Learning courses change each semester, so students are encouraged to look for the "SL" designation in the course catalog prior to registration.

The Office of Service-Learning offers immersion programs and experiences for Walsh students. Whether to Canton, Cleveland, Cincinnati, across the country, or around the globe, these experiences are designed for students to witness how organizations and individuals are addressing challenges and making positive change in their community and for students to learn how they can do the same in theirs. 


  • Study Away Service-Learning with The Border Program: Spend time learning and serving in the border community of Laredo, Texas with a Service-Learning course (TBA). Students and their faculty member will visit various social, governmental, and educational sites in the community of Laredo, TX. Students in this program will enroll in a course that aligns with the curriculum. The program fee includes airfare, transportation, accommodation, and meals.
  • See Walsh’s Global Learning page for upcoming opportunities. All semester-long Rome programs now offer a Service-Learning experience.
  • Canton Immersion: Immerse yourself in Canton, OH. Stay at Lighthouse Ministries and learn about the history, challenges, and assets of our neighboring city. Complete service, meet with nonprofit and civic leaders, and discover how you can be engaged in our own community.
