Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. Curriculum includes structured field-based "experiential learning" alongside community partners, which reinforces course learning outcomes. Within the TBR System, credit-bearing service-learning designated courses are incorporated into general education or college core requirements or a degree program.
The Experiential/Service-Learning Coordinator supports the ongoing efforts of faculty and students to pair formal learning outcomes within a course with applied practice of those concepts in local community-based organizations.
