About service-learningMSDWT

Service-learning is NOT:

  • volunteering
  • charity
  • donation
  • philanthropy

Service-learning IS academic learning linked to relevant community service.    

Service-learning involves practicaloutside-the-Butler-bubble experiences, followed by honest and in-depth reflection and self-evaluation. Consider the community engagement as an exchange program, where you and those you're working with both have valuable insights to offer. Students in ICR and SL courses often find that they receive as much as they give.
