Academic Service Learning

"Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember,
Involve me and I learn."

-Benjamin Franklin

Gonzaga Vision Statement: Deeply rooted in the centuries' old tradition of Jesuit education, Gonzaga University aspires to develop the whole person through contemplation, intellectual dialogue, and engagement within a vibrant Jesuit, Catholic, and humanistic learning community. We exist to develop generations of leaders whose actions reflect a faith that promotes justice, the pursuit of truth, a dedication to service, and a commitment to ethics and the common good.

Service-Learning at Gonzaga consists in four major components which are:

  1. Integration of service and course work to create a circular classroom.
  2. Faculty and community partners serve as co-teachers.
  3. Students are active participants in and out of the classroom.
  4. Reflection is used as a guide for class discussion.
