Making the most out of your academic experience...while making a difference
Want to see what your academic field of study means out in the "real world"? Want to make a difference while you're still a student? Hoping to put your burgeoning knowledge "in service to humanity"? Consider enrolling in one of Loyola's many service-learning courses!
Service-learning is a high impact learning practice that engages YOU and your studies in partnership with community-based organizations and projects. Here at Loyola, there are service-learning classes (usually around 50) offered every semester, in almost every department and field of study. To learn more, check out the video below:
The Center for Experiential Learning serves as a resource for students in all aspects of the service-learning process. Whether you are trying to decide which of our many service-learning courses is right for you, trying to find an appropriate volunteer position in connection with a service-learning class, or looking to publish and share the results of your community-engaged coursework, the CEL is here to help! Most of our student resources can be found on our Service-Learning 101 student resource site.
