Service-learning boils down to the integration meaingful learning, community service, and reflection. Service-learning requires partnership and collaboration between students, community partners, and faculty/staff to address community identified needs while engaging students in hands-on, experiential learning about issues of local concern.
The Carnegie Foundation defines service-learning as “…teaching, learning and scholarship engaging faculty, students, and community in mutually beneficial and respectful collaboration. Their interactions address authentic, community-identified needs, deepen students’ civic and academic learning, encourage lifelong civic engagement, enhance community well-being, and enrich the scholarship of the institution.”
"Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities." - Corporation for National and Community Service
