Service learning is a teaching methodology that uses community service as a means of helping students gain a deeper understanding of course objectives, acquire new knowledge, and engage in civic activity. The experience allows for the exchange of energy and knowledge between the student and the community.
At Bridgewater State University, service learning is supported and promoted through the activities of the Service Learning Faculty Associate, an Advisory Board of faculty and staff, the Community Service Center and shared information.
We welcome your interest in Service Learning. Please contact the Faculty Associate Dr. David O'Malley, Assistant Professor of Social Work.
