Learning embedded with the Carolinian Creed.
Service-learning is mutually rewarding for participants and participating organizations. Students enjoy a sense of community connection while living out the principles of the Carolina Creed in their day-to-day life. Service recipients benefit from professional insight and fresh thinking.
The hands-on tasks of service transform real-world concerns into avenues for educational
growth. The courses, which are an opportunity to test, observe or prove concepts and
skills, also can help students earn Graduation with Leadership Distinction (GLD).
Service-learning helps prepare students to be full, responsible participants in both their profession
and their communities.
The Effects of Service-Learning
Growing research shows that service-learning can have significant positive effects on many areas of students' lives, including:
- Academic performance
- Choice of a service career
- Plans to participate in service after college
- Increased degree of interest in subject matter
