• Recipients of WMU's Excellence in Service Learning Award.

Service-learning is a mutually beneficial endeavor in which course learning objectives are met by addressing community-identified needs--putting academics into practice. Projects require a minimum of 15 hours of service work outside the classroom, and provide students with opportunities to be a part of the solution to challenges identified by our community partners. Service-learning always includes critical reflection of the experience and empowers community members, students, and faculty to create change.

Thanks to the Racial Healing Planning Grant from W.K. Kellogg, the Office of Service-Learning was able to participate in two new projects during the 2014-15 school year: an African American Males First-Year Experience course and the Transgender Campus Education program. Learn more about the grant.
