Service Learning Information

Service Learning Transcript Notation

It is a goal for LS majors to complete 150 hours of service learning.  As future teachers, a habit of community service can help you establish your lifelong professional and personal goals.  It will help you better understand social and cultural values of your surrounding communities and awaken awareness to the many layers of our complex world.  Remember that teaching is a giving profession.
 
The LS curriculum has some courses with service learning components:
