“Service-Learning is a course-based, credit-bearing educational experience by which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and 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.”
– National and Community Service Trust Act

“Service-Learning emphasizes reciprocity– between campus and community — between those who serve and those who learn.  Service-Learning is an approach to experiential learning and expression of values – service to others, community development and empowerment, reciprocal learning – which determines the purpose, nature and process of social and educational exchange.”
 – T. Stanton, NSEE
