About Service Learning
Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates the following:
1. Reflection on the impact of meaningful community service;
2. Demonstration of civic responsibility; and
3. Development of relationships with community partners.
Service-learning is considered to be a High-Impact Educational Practice and has been shown to increase student engagement and success.
The Service-Learning Grant was established in the fall semester of 2012 by the IEL to encourage faculty to incorporate new service-learning opportunities for students into their courses. The Grant of up to $500 can be used to assist with related expenses, including transportation, supplies, permits, food (if service extends over a meal period), educational resources, registrations, entry fees or similar expenses.
Previous recipients: please note that we are now accepting applications for courses that have previously received the grant. First preference will still go to the addition of new opportunities, but previous recipients may certainly still apply and receive funding.
