Faculty members participate by integrating service into course curricula that directly ties to specific course goals and objectives. This method helps students make clear connections between the relevance of their academic experience and their future professional lives in society.

Examples of Serve to Learn

Collegiate coursework in any field or discipline can incorporate a serve to learn component. A few examples of serve to learn include: engineering students developing math and science education modules for district K-12 schools, students creating grant proposals and brochures for local nonprofit organizations, criminal justice students helping teens in the juvenile justice system, English and communication students teaching literacy skills to people in homeless and domestic violence shelters, business students developing management plans and marketing materials for nonprofit groups, architecture students collaborating with local governments to design affordable housing and children's playgrounds, and education majors mentoring and tutoring at-risk youth in concert with K-12 partners. Serve to learn can promote engaged teaching and learning through organized service projects to develop students' citizenship skills and values while encouraging collaborative partnerships to address community needs.
