Service Learning

Service-Learning is a form of Experiential Learning that engages students in experiential learning that integrates community service into the curriculum and objectives of a course. These courses are reciprocally beneficial; students work toward addressing community identified needs through service experiences with community partners, while structured in-class reflections aid them in developing a deeper understanding of how disciplinary knowledge connects to and influences the world around them. 

Service-Learning as a practice aligns with Austin Community College’s mission to implement high impact practices and increase student engagement. The Office of Experiential Learning’s Service-Learning Program functions to standardize best practices for service-learning across the college through faculty development programs, campus wide events, and support with project implementation. The information and resources in this lib-guide are intended for all faculty, both as an introduction to the practice and as a resource repository for faculty who are ready and trained for service-learning implementation. 

This guide is meant to help with your research into service-learning. For additional information about ACC's Service-Learning program, please consult the official Service Learning web site, or contact Linda Cox, ACC's Service-Learning Program Coordinator.
