Service-Learning Community Collaborators

Service-Learning is a hands-on approach to teaching and learning in which community agencies collaborate with Duke faculty members to create projects and experiences that facilitate undergraduates' integration of classroom learning and theories with lived community actions, experiences and activism.

Because service-learning placements are tied to a course and monitored by faculty members, student “volunteers” tend to be highly reliable and motivated. In addition, Service-Learning staff members are available to help identify appropriate semester-long activities, offer advice, and act as a liaison when appropriate.
