Service Learning at Bay State College

What is Service Learning?

Service learning at Bay State College is an educational process in which students collaborate with faculty to develop learning objectives that foster social responsibility and promote civic engagement through community service and guided reflection.

The faculty and students at Bay State College work with community organizations to design collaborative projects that address community issues and that allow students to develop and apply academic and critical thinking skills.

Service learning experiences and structured reflection provide students with the opportunity to make connections between academic course content and community issues, in the broader context of civic engagement. Service learning also facilitates the exchange of ideas, knowledge and resources between Bay State College and the local community, the New England area, and beyond.
