What is Service-Learning?
Service-Learning is experiential learning that connects classroom content to community action. During a service-learning course, students serve 20-40 hours in a community setting that connects meaningfully with course content. Students are expected to complete assignment(s) that demonstrate learning connections between the classroom and community.
All Loyola undergraduates are required to complete at least one Engaged Learning course totaling at least three credit hours prior to graduation. Designated service-learning courses fulfill this requirement. Loyola offers 40-50 courses each semester across all majors and schools: Service-Learning Classes: Fall 2014.
Service-learning opportunities enable you to develop academic, personal, professional, and civic skills that a traditional class might not.
