Academic Service Learning

Making a Difference In Your Community

Academic Service Learning

Service Learning is an educational experience that enriches learning by engaging students in meaningful service to their schools and communities. It is an academic teaching method that helps students learn and develop through active participation in thoughtful, structured time for reflection; through fostering academic learning; and through a sense of caring and civic responsibility

Service Learning benefits the community, Redlands Community College students, faculty, and staff by:

  • Helping to fulfill community needs.
  • Exposing and teaching communities about emerging generations of students.
  • Establishing access and connections to other resources available at the community college.
  • Providing an opportunity for partner agencies to develop a strong sense of community and civic responsibility through Redlands Community College students.

Service Learning is an educational method in which students step into leadership roles in thoughtfully organized service experiences that meet real needs in their community. The service is integrated into the student's academic courses with structured time to research, reflect, discuss, and connect their experiences in the service field to their learning in the classroom.
