Academic service-learning means service that is integrated with academic course content. It may involve direct or indirect service, and may include academic research. Its goal is to integrate classroom and community goals through transformative service partnerships that enrich the academic experience inspire lifelong community engagement, and strengthen our local and global communities. Service-learning is a form of experiential learning involving partnerships between faculty-led academic courses and community-based organizations. Through these partnerships students engage in hands-on service roles and projects by which they learn about and apply course concepts while intentionally addressing the needs/interests identified by our community partners.
Southeast Missouri State encourages all students to participate in Southeast Serves. You can get involved by filling out a Volunteer Application form. We ask that all volunteers log their ours on accomplishing their service. Southeast Missouri State is attempting to recognize all the hard work performed by students volunteering and giving back to the community. We ask that all volunteers wear their Southeast Serves t-shirt when performing community service. Please indicate your size on the sign-up form. Most importantly, we encourage you to have fun! Community service is a great way to meet new friends and make wonderful memories.
