Service-Learning

The mission of Service-Learning at Centenary University is to create a climate for experiential learning by facilitating service opportunities in the classroom that will reinforce academic learning outcomes and promote a culture of service.


What is Service-Learning?

While both service-learning and other forms of community service are important to the life and culture of our campus, service-learning stands out in one important way: the service is directly related to course content. This will help students make real life connections between their classroom work and the needs of the community, turning academic work into a meaningful way to contribute to the broader society.
