What is service-learning?

Service-learning is a teaching and learning approach that integrates community service with academic study to enrich learning, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

~ National Commission on Service-Learning, 2002


Faculty members who teach service-learning courses arrange specific service opportunities that both enhance the educational goals of a course and serve the public good by providing a needed service in the community.

Students taking service-learning courses commit to completing a certain number of hours of service work outside of class, and to reflecting on this work through class discussions and assignments.

Community partners receive assistance from students and often enjoy the intellectual stimulation of collaborating with Duke faculty members and students to support the academic goals of the course.
