KU Service Learning Hub

Service-learning is an "educational experience that allows students to (a) participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and (b) reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility." It may include educational experiences that are course-based, credit-bearing, and/or support degree requirements (e.g., certificate, core goal requirement) and must include intentional reflection of the experience.
