Office of Service-Learning and Community Engagement

The Office of Service-Learning and Community Engagement’s (OSLCE) mission is to support faculty, staff, and students participating in service-learning by providing an extensive set of workshops and resources that encourage teaching and learning within and beyond traditional classroom settings.

The Office of Service-Learning and Community Engagement (OSLCE) defines service-learning as a method of teaching and learning designed to connect meaningful community service with academic coursework and purposeful reflection. The experience promotes reciprocal benefits for all participants and a renewed sense of community connection while upholding the principles embodied in the Carolina Creed.

Service-learning courses emphasize hands-on tasks that address real-world concerns as a venue for educational growth. The service experience provides a context for testing, observing, or trying out discipline-specific and theory-based theories, concepts, and skills. Through reciprocal learning and community engagement, service-learning helps prepare students to be full and responsible participants in both their profession and their communities.
