Service Learning

Service-Learning

Central Arizona College’s Service Learning Initiative Project seeks to integrate meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities.  At CAC, Service Learning is a structured learning experience where the instructor combines a community service project with explicit learning objectives, academic preparation and student reflection.   Students are expected not only to provide direct community service but also to learn about the context in which the service is provided, the connection between the service and their academic coursework and their roles as citizens.   A Service Learning Project involves the community partner in the service-learning design and implementation by providing meaningful service projects, which ties the skills and knowledge gained in the classroom with concrete, practical experience that benefits the students, the community partner and the community at large.

Central Arizona College’s Service Learning Initiative Project is committed to providing a quality educational experience for students and a valuable service to both the community and the community partner.
