Service-Learning Models

The following has been adapted from the service-learning resources at Marquette University and Milwaukee Area Technical College.

Students choose from among several placements that have been pre-selected for their course. They work at these sites multiple times, usually throughout the semester. The service students provide is the conduit to their learning; they gain access to the populations or issues related to their courses. In turn, they provide needed assistance to the organizations and/or their clientele.

  • Typically, the student does not have a large project that they are working on for the community partner, but they tend to have direct contact with clients or issues.
  • Example: students in an honors course identify a social issue that they are interested in and work with community partners each week to address those community needs.
