Up one level
Service Learning (SL) is a way for you to become involved in the community and to combine experiential learning with classroom learning.
The Service Learning program at RRCC connects community service with academic instruction, focusing on critical, reflective thinking and personal and civic responsibility. With the support of faculty and fellow students, service learning can add a new dimension to classroom discussions. You have the opportunity to serve your community while applying knowledge gained in the classroom. Community organizations benefit from your involvement while you enhance your own sense of personal outreach in meeting community needs. Students with a final SL class grade of C or higher will receive Service Learning designation on their official transcripts.
Students interested in pursuing Service Learning in any non-designated SL classes can ask their instructors’ permission to pursue individual service projects. Transcript designation is available to these students as well. Students can also pursue volunteerism through the AmeriCorps program, where education award scholarships are available for designated terms of service.
