About the Center...
Tennessee State University’s Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement exists to facilitate quality educational experiences through community-based service-learning. The Center connects campus and community resources to create diverse learning experiences and to serve community needs.
Through service learning, students develop the skills to work collaboratively and compassionately, and to create more just and equitable workplaces, communities, and social institutions. Service-learning courses include learning objectives that help students clarify their own conception of service as they participate in the community. Additionally, TSU students acquire the knowledge, skills and awareness to become more culturally aware, self-reflective, and responsive community participants.
Tennessee State University offers approximately 40 service-learning courses each semester across all disciplines.
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can
do, or any kindness or abilities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way
again. -William Penn
