The goal of Service Learning at SU is to better educate students by integrating academics with community service.
Service learning is a way for students to try new things, connect campus and community, see course content from a different angle, and reflect upon possibilities for personal and social change.
Skilled in relating theory and practice and grounded in civic responsibility, students who participate in service learning build connections and enhance employment opportunities after graduation.
In a few courses, service learning is an integral part of the class. In others, a faculty member may choose to offer this valuable opportunity to students through the One Credit Option, a chance to earn an extra credit for a course-related service project.
