Service learning is a unique experience that allows students to get hands-on interaction with the community around them, as well as set them apart in the professional field. Service learning teaches civic responsibility by connecting students, under the guidance of their professors, to both current course curriculum and the communities that surround them.
Dedicating time to service learning empowers students to take part in the community, stay informed, participate in teamwork, and gain leadership qualities. Taking on community outreach allows students to achieve personal goals and gain enriched values as they become valued members of the community.
ETFL offers service learning classes at every level, from composition to honors to upper level projects. For more information about service learning at UNCP check out their website.
