The certificate program in Service-Learning is designed for students in any discipline who seek to engage in a reflective analysis of community service as it relates to academic course work. Service-Learning furthers the learning objectives of the academic course, addresses community needs, and requires students to reflect on their activity in order to gain an appreciation for the relationship between civics and academics. Through Service-Learning (SL) courses, students develop academic skills, civic responsibility, and career opportunities. Since this certificate requires the completion of four SL courses, it reflects significant interest and commitment to this process. This certificate is open to all undergraduate and graduate students in any major.
