Welcome to Service Learning

Service-learning is an educational approach that allows students to combine their studies with the needs of their community, all while learning profound lessons and information that cannot be found in a classroom setting. This [academic] experience allows for personal growth within a student and helps foster essential character traits that are necessary in being an active community member. Here at California Northstate University College of Health Sciences, service-learning is a unique course as it helps students in health professional careers learn about the intersectionalities between classroom lessons and community involvement.In turn, acquiring these skills will allow students to gain a deeper understanding of how to be an advocate for their community and allow for a strong foundation for their involvement in the healthcare field.
