The University of Delaware has a long history of service to the State of Delaware. Many Colleges and Centers on campus have well-established relationships with the community. To continue and enhance that commitment, the Office of Service-Learning was created to provide continued support for a mode of teaching that has an engaged citizenry as a goal for its graduates. Service-Learning is a method of teaching that integrates students’ work in community placements with directed reflection that connects theory and experience.
Community partners are an essential component of service-learning and work with faculty and students to develop projects that are appropriate for a particular course and meet the community’s needs. Service-Learning projects tend towards the long-term and should be conceived by the community agency as a way to meet a need that ordinarily would not have resources.
