Why Do Service-Learning

Service-learning is a Core Curriculum requirement for all undergraduate students at USF. Besides fulfilling a requirement, however, there are many benefits for students doing service-learning:

  • Enhance learning and connect theory to practice
  • Enhance critical thinking skills as service applies course concepts and theory to real world problem-solving situations
  • Enhance moral/ethical development
  • Increase leadership and conflict resolution skills
  • Explore other majors and career opportunities
  • Foster civic responsibility and encourage life-long commitment to service
  • Gain an understanding of social and political issues facing society and the local community
  • Observe and experience diversity (socioeconomic, race, religion, etc.)
  • Learn new skills and tools
  • Enhance employability
  • Improve self-efficacy
  • Make a difference in the community!
