Undergraduate Community-Engaged Learning

Degree Requirement for Service Learning / Community-Engaged Learning

In order to fulfill the University’s service learning requisite, students are required to complete a semester-long community engagement and service learning course* tailored to your major.

Example Community-Engaged Learning Classes

My favorite class at USF was a service learning class called Management and Organizational Dynamics. I not only learned about the subject material but also learned a lot about myself and what kind of person I want to be in the future. I would honestly say that I am a better person and definitely grew in character because of this class. Its service learning aspect taught me how to help others and be more self-aware, and helped me to focus on how I can affect people in a better way."Jerwin Almazar '18

“Educating hearts and minds to change the world” is at the core of USF service values, and nothing embodies this value more than our Service Learning Program within the McLaren School of Management.

This program gives you the opportunity to actively put your classroom learning to work by addressing the needs of our community and its citizens.

In order to fulfill the University’s service learning requisite, you are required to complete a semester-long service learning course tailored to your major. Your professor for the course works with you to fulfill the requirements, in partnership with the community organization you choose to work with.
