Service-learning Courses

 

Academic Service Learning is an educational experience based upon a collaborative partnership between the university and the community. “Learning by doing” enables students to apply academic knowledge and critical thinking skills to meet genuine community needs. Through reflection and assessment, students gain deeper understanding of course content and the importance of civic engagement. 

The number of students participating in service learning at Tulane has grown since the University instituted a new Public Service requirement through its 2006 Renewal Plan. Placed at numerous sites throughout the city for a variety of courses, students spend 20 or 40 hours (depending on the class) completing their service throughout the semester.  

See the links to the right for more information on current and historical service learning courses offered, the requirement, and common misconceptions.  Contact Bridget Smith (bridget1@tulane.edu) for any questions.
