More about The Center and Its Offerings

Each course that will be offered through The Center will have an intentional service-learning project imbedded in the course. These projects will be strategically offered in existing (and future) locations. The goal is to allow everyone who serves in that community location to make an impact; not with just one visit but through a cumulative impact as repeated Service Learning Study Away courses continue to go back to the same partners. This effort supports and enhances the service projects as well as builds deeper relationships in each community. A cadre of trained leaders from led2serve will be at each location to guide students and faculty on the service-learning component.
