Institute for Teaching and Learning

UA Service-Learning is...

Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

  • The service-learning office in the Institute for Teaching and Learning exists to foster student engagement and enhance learning through service-learning at the University of Akron.

We offer:

  • Assistance integrating service-learning projects into coursework
  • Training on the basics of service-learning
  • Help building relationships with community partners
  • Support through writing and implementing service-learning grant proposals.
