Service-Learning Assistance

Learn to design your course or assignment around community service.

Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

(From Fayetteville State University)

Service-learning . . .

  • attempts to create positive change in both service recipients (community partners) and providers (students).
  • adapts to individual disciplines, courses, and assignments.
  • requires students to reflect on how their service contributes to their understanding of course content.
  • contributes to Xavier's social justice mission.
  • is deeply needed in post-Katrina New Orleans.

Learn more about service learning at Xavier on the official service learning page from CSLS. More pedagogical resources related to service learning are available on the CAT+FD wiki.

Get assistance with implementing service-learning projects into your existing courses, designing new courses around service-learning, assessing and revising current service-learning projects, or designing research projects around your service-learning.
