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 (servicelearning.org).
The BCLS is here to provide you with ideas for service-learning curriculum development, reflective activities that help students think critically about their experience, organization placements for students, and presentations to prepare students prior to service. If you would like to set an appointment to have a Service Learning Consultation or a Site Referral please email firstname.lastname@example.org

- Grow the number of quality SL opportunities across disciplines.
- Strengthen/improve current SL opportunities
