Community Work and Learning works with academic departments on both campuses to offer service-learning courses. In these classes, students spend time partnering with community organizations in the Twin Cities.
Service-learning focuses on critical reflection, civic responsibility, local community needs, and enhancing academic skills. In addition, these courses create a direct exchange among the student, faculty member, and community organization.
