The Kernodle Center for Service Learning and Community Engagement, in partnership with local and global communities, advances student learning, leadership, and citizenship to prepare students for lives of active community engagement within a complex and changing world. The Center provides a wide-range of opportunities for students including options for academic credit. Academic Service-Learning (ASL) helps students gain a better understanding of course content by putting it into practice. Service-learning engages students in real-life settings, working on community issues to connect classroom learning with societal issues. An effective service-learning course involves students in a meaningful community project combined with reflection to process the learning gained from field experience. You can find more information about ASL courses offered for the upcoming semester here.
