Experiential Learning utilizes a variety of activities with one common goal: to provide the student with hands-on learning outside the classroom where your experience is integral to the learning process.
Service Learning combines meaningful community service with classroom instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience and teach civic responsibility. Service Learning is a curricular experience and may include indirect (planning) and direct service hours working directly with the community partner.
Service Learning is reciprocal in that both the recipient, the community partner, and the volunteer, the student, benefit. Students develop practical skills, discover their passion, and learn the importance of civic responsibility.
Types of Service Learning
An internship is a short-term mentored work experience connected to your major for which you receive academic credit. Internships differ from service learning or volunteer work in that it has an intentional "learning agenda" in a structured environment.
Internships provide valuable, real-world, hands-on experience to students. Employers benefit by evaluating students for potential full-time employment -- those with applied knowledge and skills set themselves apart.
