Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that takes students beyond the classroom and extends their learning into the community in a meaningful and constructive way. Service learning and community service is a core value in the mission of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College because it teaches our students civic responsibility and how to strengthen communities. Students apply what they learn in a classroom in real world situations while also helping the community.
