Center for Service Learning

Don't just learn about the world, make it a better place!

Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that combines volunteer service with academic instruction and guided critical reflection.  Students at HCC have the opportunity to get involved with the Center for Service Learning by taking an academic course that offers a service learning component or participating in a co-curricular service learning program.

First established by a federal Learn and Serve grant in 2003, the Center for Service Learning has been working collaboratively with faculty, students, and our community for over ten years.  In the fall of 2012, the Center for Service Learning proudly joined the Maryland-D.C. Campus Compact in order to further Howard Community College’s commitment to serving the community and developing civically engaged students.
