The Office of Service-Learning
Embark on a journey of personal development through the coordination of service with your academic studies!
Incorporate service into self and community
Eckerd College requires students to participate in at least 40 hours of service work prior to graduation. The Office of Service-Learning aids in the facilitation of this requirement, and also gives students the opportunity to be innovators and create their own service-learning projects and activities.
We move beyond service at the emotional level and push students to think about how they can incorporate service to self and community in both their work and livelihood. The following map highlights domestic and international service trips from previous years.
Service-Learning and Internship Fair
Thursday, September 3rd, 2015, 11:00am - 2:00pm in Fox Hall
On average, over 400 students attend this fair each year in order to connect with our community partners! We encourage our students to THINKOUTSIDE with real-world internship and volunteer opportunities that can strengthen their resumes and prepare them for their future. In addition, all students are required to complete at least 40 hours of community service.
Partner with community agencies, faculty and campus groups
In addition to our link between academics and community, we provide students with opportunities to partner with community agencies in reciprocal service-learning, collaborate with faculty in an effort to integrate community service with academic coursework, and support campus groups by organizing service activities that relate to their work and mission.
Eckerd College students have engaged in incredible service work over the years.
