Welcome EWU Faculty and Students!
The EWU Office of Community Engagement (OCE) is here to help better connect the students and faculty to the community!
Service-Learning is a teaching strategy that integrates course content with relevant community service. Through assignments and class discussions, students critically reflect on the service in order to increase their understanding of course content, gain a broader appreciation of the discipline, and enhance their sense of civic responsibility.
Service-Learning at EWU:
- Seeks to develop projects intentionally and in collaboration with community partners to meet a critical agency or community need.
- Provides students service-learning activities which are purposeful and support the academic outcomes of the course.
- Requires ongoing, structured reflection throughout the course to deepen the connections between classroom learning and the service performed.
- Fosters an environment in which students, faculty and community partners are co-learners and co-teachers in creating better communities.
