ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships

Service-Learning

Dr. Mize Smith teaching students

At WKU curricular service-learning is a course-based, credit-bearing educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets a community need and reflect on their service activity as a means of gaining a deeper understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, an enhanced sense of social responsibility and/or a greater interest in an understanding of community life.

The ALIVE Center is available to assist with Service-Learning efforts on campus and in the community by:

  • Scheduling one-to-one meetings to assist with coordinating service-learning projects in a classroom or organizational setting
  • Speaking to classes or organizations
  • Connecting service-learning project ideas with appropriate campus or community partners
  • Facilitating $100 Solution service-learning project applications

If you need further information or assistance, please contact Nadia De Leon, Community Engagement Coordinator, at 270-782-0966 or at nadia.deleon@wku.edu.
