Service Learning - A Duty to Produce Responsible Future Citizens

Dr. Paul Newman [2]

Abstract: Service - learning is a teaching and learning methodology which fosters civic responsibility and applies classroom learning through meaningful service to the community. The strongest service - learning experiences occur when the service is meaningfully immersed in ongoing learning and is a natural part of the curriculum that extends into the community. Service - learning is an essential strategy in providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum which will prepare students to succeed in the 21st century. Research shows that service - learning experiences that incorporate the national standards and indicators result in positive academic, civic, and social - emotional outcomes. Service - Learning not only fulfills the institution's historic mission, but reinforces the concepts woven throughout the strategic plan. Teaching and advising, research and scholarship, outreach, and the institution's community can all be enhanced through student and faculty involvement in community service - learning.
