Making the most out of your academic experience...while making a difference

Want to see what your academic field of study means out in the "real world"?  Want to make a difference while you're still a student?  Hoping to put your burgeoning knowledge "in service to humanity"?  Consider enrolling in one of Loyola's many service-learning courses!

Service-learning is a high impact learning practice that engages YOU and your studies in partnership with community-based organizations and projects.  Here at Loyola, there are service-learning classes (usually around 50) offered every semester, in almost every department and field of study.  To learn more, check out the video below:

The Center for Experiential Learning serves as a resource for students in all aspects of the service-learning process.  Whether you are trying to decide which of our many service-learning courses is right for you, trying to find an appropriate volunteer position in connection with a service-learning class, or looking to publish and share the results of your community-engaged coursework, the CEL is here to help!  Most of our student resources can be found on our Service-Learning 101 student resource site.

Still not sure if service-learning is for you?  Read answers to frequently asked questions about service-learning at Loyola, or read about the experiences of OTHER Loyola students who have engaged or are engaging THEIR studies through service-learning on our "Ramblers at Large" blog!
