Faculty

The Service-Learning faculty can benefit personally and professionally from integrating service-learning into their courses.  Teaching with service-learning can:

  • Promote students’ active learning.

  • Engage students with different learning styles.

  • Encourage more interactive teaching methods and reciprocal learning between students and faculty.

  • Add new insights and dimensions to class discussions.

  • Foster relationships between faculty and community-based organizations that can open opportunities for other collaborative work.

  • Provide firsthand knowledge of community issues and opportunities to become more socially active.

  • Lead to new opportunities for faculty research and publication.

  • Provide networking opportunities with engaged faculty in other disciplines.
