Service learning helps you take what you study in the classroom and apply it in the community. So the skills you learn in your “Intercultural Communication” class will prepare you to help Lincoln’s refugees become English literate.
NWU’s service learning courses provide “structured reflection.” That gives you the opportunity to articulate exactly how the classroom concepts you learned apply to your service.
Your volunteerism is part of our university-wide commitment to community and global citizenship. You will make your new community all the stronger with your service. Engaged learners make great neighbors.
