Service Learning for Students

UNLV has a number of courses in which students serve the local community as a part of the learning process. There are numerous benefits to taking a service learning course.

What you can expect from a service-learning course:

  • Valuable experiences that directly impact a population in your community.
  • The opportunity to connect your service experience to course objectives.
  • The chance to step out of your comfort zone and experience the community like you never have before.
  • The opportunity to practice professional skills; community organizations will expect you to show up on time, communicate professionally, and meet deadlines and goals.
  • Clear direction and training; you will participate in an orientation to learn about the organization’s mission, impact, and protocol for volunteers.
