What is Service-Learning

Service-learning at Utah Valley University is an engaged teaching and learning strategy in which students participate in structured service activities that:

  • meet identified community needs,
  • enhance discipline-based knowledge and skills,
  • strengthen the community,
  • encourage in-depth understanding of course content and a broader appreciation of the discipline,
  • immerse students in the subject matter and its application, and
  • enhance the students' sense of civic responsibility and community engagement.
