Making the most out of your academic experience...while making a difference
Service-learning means connecting classroom content with action in the community. Service-learning is practice for democratic participation and it is democratic participation while you are still a student. Service-learning is a great way to answer Loyola's call to serve humanity, be a person for others, set the world on fire! 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 approximately 50 service-learning courses in many departments and majors offered each semester. Check out the current course offerings at Service-Learning Courses: Spring 2015. 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 course is right for you, 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.
