“Service-Learning is a credit-bearing, educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.”
Bringle, RG & Hatcher, JA (2000, May/June). Institutionalization of service-learning in higher education. The Journal of Higher Education.
