Academic Service-Learning

Academic service-learning is more than a volunteer activity; it integrates community service with instruction and reflection. It is designed to enrich the learning experience through hands-on activity and to teach civic responsibility. Academic service learning requires students to apply what they learn in the classroom and to reflect on their experiences by thinking, discussing, and writing about them. It teaches students how to apply academic knowledge to real-life civic issues, promotes teamwork and collaborative problem-solving, develops life skills, and makes learning more personally meaningful.

Primary Components of Academic Service-Learning at FAU:

  • Relevant and Meaningful Service in the Community - The AS-L project should be applicable to the course and worthwhile in meeting community needs.
  • Enhanced Academic Learning - The AS-L project should complement what is learned in the classroom and provide experience in a “real world” setting.
  • Purposeful Civic Engagement - The AS-L project should be designed to have students practice the learning strategies and/or content of the class that meets course learning objectives in a community setting.
  • Critical Reflection - The AS-L project should ask students to reflect on how the project links to (1) course objectives, (2) the impact of the student’s work in the community, and (3) the impact on the student’s personal and professional development.*
  • Minimum of 10 Hours
  • Assessment of A S-L project
  • Academic Service-Learning Statement
  • Assumption of Risk Statement
