Service Learning

How can I do it?

Talk to your professor or advisor or sponsor

Talk to CETL (Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning)

What is it?

Service-learning, or community engagement, integrates learning and community service.  As part of a class or co-curricular project, service-learning uses instruction and reflection to enrich learning, to encourage civic responsibility and to strengthen out community.

Why do it?

Serve the community
Apply course content to community-based activities
Experience learning in real world contexts
Get Credit for your volunteer work

Who does it?

Students in all disciplines are encouraged to participate in volunteer work and community engagement.  Some Kentucky Wesleyan College programs offer specific service-learning or community engagement activities -Art, Education, Criminal Justice, Human Services Administration, Psychology-but you can explore it through other classes or curricular activities (like Sophomore Experience or fraternities and sororities).
