Service Learning is a form of experiential learning that integrates classroom learning with service activities to address the needs of the surrounding communities. It is an effective strategy not only to foster civic engagement, but also to enhance student learning and educational experiences while building a partnership between the university and the local community. Service Learning courses typically include structured time for students to reflect on and discuss their service experiences and how it relates to their academic learning.
