Faculty members play an important role in the service learning process. Each year, instructors from a wide range of disciplines incorporate a service component into their curricula, adding a new dimension for learning. From child development to astronomy, students are engaging in community activities that increase learning, support community needs, raise awareness on cultural competency, and provide practical experiences.
