Service-learning is a mutually beneficial endeavor in which course learning objectives are met by addressing community-identified needs—putting academics into practice. Service-learning guidelines generally suggest that students provide at least 15 to 20 hours of service during the semester; however, this varies according to specific learning objectives. Service-learning always includes critical reflection of the work, interactions, and learning regarding the service, and it is always a collaboration among community partners, students, and professors, instructors or staff.
