Service-Learning at Clemson University is experiential education in which community service complements academic course material. Combining learning goals and community service enhances both student growth and the common good. It allows both instructors and students to apply their acquired knowledge and skills in a public setting by performing tasks with or for a community or a specific public organization.
Service-Leaning improves students’ ability to apply what they have learned in “the real world.” These projects give faculty and students a greater sense of personal efficacy, personal identity, spiritual growth, and moral and interpersonal development. In addition, students make connections with professionals and community members that enhance learning and career opportunities.
