Service-Learning is a pedagogical method that engages students in organized service activities and guided reflection; the service activities benefits students and the community that they serve with and, in combination with reflection, enhance the academic curriculum of participating students. Service-learning is distinct from acts of charity because it is reciprocal; students, faculty, and community partners teach and learn through their interactions. Teaching and learning are informed by the realities of the world, and service is informed by theoretical and conceptual understanding. Visit our Service-Learning homepage here for more information.
Academic service-learning takes place as part of a course taught her at Gonzaga. Instead of assigning another text to read, faculty decide to send students into the Spokane community to do service and critically reflect on the meaning and relationships of that service. Co-curricular service is defined as service projects that students choose to do which is not a part of a course and they do not receive any form of academic credit for participation.
Service Learning Courses are designated in the far right-hand column of Zagweb's listings of courses. You can also check the course list here.
