Overview

The Office of Service Learning at Fairfield University encourages and supports service-learning course development, community partnerships for cooperative education, and meaningful reflection experiences.

Each year, 40 or more individual courses include service learning, involving hundreds of Fairfield University students and dozens of community organizations.

Building a Community Partnership

  • We focus on harnessing the assets of the community: the partnering organizations and professionals, the University, the faculty, and the students.
  • The community partner and University faculty serve as co-educators; lessons learned from active service are directly applied to course material.
  • We strive for sustainability - the development of long-term, mutually-beneficial relationships with community organizations.
