USI’s Service Learning Program is designed to support faculty and staff who want to make a difference in their community through learning and teaching , as well as support the students and community partners who participate. The program focuses especially on faculty and staff who want to incorporate community projects into courses or activities for USI students. The goal of the program is to significantly enhance student learning while providing valuable services to the community.
Students who participate in the Service Learning Program have an opportunity to better understand course material and can apply their knowledge to "real world" experiences. Students can also participate in co-curricular service learning projects that entail learning goals while addressing issues that interest them.
