Mission Statement

The Service-Learning office promotes the scholarship of engagement through the creation and promotion of mutually beneficial relationships that allow students to put their knowledge to work for the betterment of the Brookings community and beyond.

Description

Academic Service-Learning is a pedagogy that integrates service in the community with academic study to meet specific learning goals for students. Faculty, in partnership with representatives of community agencies, design service-learning projects that will:

  • meet community-identified needs
  • advance students' understanding of specific course content
  • promote civic engagement.

Critical reflective components are built into the course to help students consider relationships between their service, the course curriculum, current societal issues, and their professional goals.


Co-curricular Service-Learning differs only with regard to a link to course content. It maintains the requirements that the activity have specific learning goals for participants, the service must meet a community-identified need, and includes strong reflection and evaluation components. Generally these service activities are directed under the leadership of student organizations and groups.
