Service-learning is a teaching and learning method that connects meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, focusing on critical, reflective thinking, and civic responsibility. Service-Learning enhances what is taught in college by extending students' learning beyond the classroom and providing opportunities for students to use their emerging and acquired skills and knowledge to meet real needs in the community.
