Community-Based Learning at USF

Community-Based Learning

Service-learning courses are an integral component of the University of San Francisco’s undergraduate curriculum, providing students with community-based lessons about social justice issues and their own potential to be agents of change. Since 2002, all USF undergraduate students have been required to complete one or more of these courses in order to graduate. The University’s service-learning requirement offers a central mechanism for achieving the mission of “educating minds and hearts to change the world.”  The Community-Based Learning program includes Faculty Development, Advocates for Community Engagement (ACEs) and Community Partner Development.
