About Service Learning Courses
Over 75 service-learning courses are taught each academic year, giving students the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to everyday life. Our Freshman Orientation course, UNIV1000: Service to Leadership, introduces freshmen to their local community by involving them in eight hours of service the first semester. Service-learning at TSU exists at all levels, in all disciplines, and makes a difference in the lives of our students, as well as in our community!
Here's what students say about service-learning...
“More service-learning project components need to be implemented because it helps students face real world problems and gives them a sense of "real time" job performance.”
“This course was amazing, and has truly helped me make the connection between the theory that I learned in class and the experience that I had in the community setting. This was one of the best classes that I have taken this semester. I will continue to explore more about nonprofit service in the community.”
“Projects that involve service-learning are an amazing way to think outside of a student's personal environment, think about how they can make a difference in someone's community, and actually give students the inspiration and initiative they need to become a role model for the community.”
