Develop a spirit of service
Make a meaningful difference with service learning
IU students, alumni, faculty and staff dedicate thousands of hours to service learning every year. You can be part of it by taking a service learning class. Service learning includes structured community service and a chance for you to learn more about the community you live in. It also offers a chance to reflect on the meaning of service with regard to larger public issues or purposes.
Service learning builds and strengthens the university’s relationship with area nonprofits, community organizations and cultural groups by meeting community needs. And at the same time, it can help you explore new perspectives, meet a variety of people, and become a socially responsible citizen.
