Building social responsibility and fostering a spirit of civic engagement, Service Learning offers students a unique opportunity to combine classroom knowledge with real-world action. The course integrates volunteer experiences with critical reflection activities, allowing students to connect academic concepts to community needs. Through service projects aligned with curriculum objectives, students develop valuable skills like communication, collaboration, and problem-solving while making a positive impact on their community. This experiential learning fosters empathy, social awareness, and a lifelong commitment to active citizenship.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
