Center for Service-Learning

Center for Service-Learning

Academic service-learning is a teaching method that involves Nazareth students, faculty, and staff partnering with community organizations to learn the knowledge and skills connected to academic course objectives. We also support community engaged scholarship which involves collaborations with community partners and prioritizes community issues in determining the objectives of a research project.

The Center for Service-Learning:

  • Supports faculty who wish to integrate service-learning into courses.
  • Develops sustainable community-college partnerships.
  • Encourages faculty and students to prioritize community needs and to involve community partners when designing research projects.
  • Makes connections between Nazareth College faculty and community organizations.
