Academic service-learning is a teaching method that involves Naz students, faculty, and staff performing community service in order 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.
