Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with coursework to enrich the learning experience. Through service-learning, students use what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems and contribute to their communities.
The November Doherty lobby display was created by the Office of Service-Learning at UST. The office partners with over 120 nonprofit organizations throughout Houston to provide service-learning course options every semester. These courses are a great opportunity for students to gain practical experience in their fields while having a positive impact on the Houston community. To find service-learning options available in your field, speak with your academic advisor.
