Service learning is a tool that some faculty members use to teach course content. By integrating a service experience into their class requirements, they are more able to richly expose students to course objectives, personal development skills, and civic engagement. Assignments vary for each instructor, but placements are typically 10-25 hours during the semester time frame. Service learning courses are often listed in the course schedule with a "V" designation or course marker. Visit cel.mercer.edu to learn more.
