Community Service Opportunities for Students
The University encourages and supports community service. Through organizations such as the Stevenson Student United Way, students can serve the community in many ways. The University supports students who aim to develop an awareness of social issues and have a desire to contribute to their solution rather than their perpetuation. Many of the mentioned clubs and organizations include service as an integral part of their mission and offer numerous service opportunities for the community.
Formal service-learning opportunities have been developed within the curriculum of the University and are incorporated into classes that are labeled service-learning or one-credit options. These service-learning opportunities allow students to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom in an authentic way to meet genuine community needs. These classes integrate meaningful service with academic instruction and reflection while providing students with the resources to be civically, socially, and culturally engaged.
