What is Service-Learning?

Service-learning at Salem State is a teaching methodology in which students learn through thoughtfully organized service and structured reflection tied directly to academic objectives. Service activities, conducted with and meeting the needs of a community partner, foster civic responsibility and deepen academic understanding.

Service-learning courses are beneficial to everyone involved. Community partners benefit from the creativity and new level of energy that students and faculty bring to their organization in a sustainable way that often allows for more in-depth projects than a singular volunteer opportunity.
