Service Learning

Service Learning


Service learning is a multi-disciplinary, experiential learning effort that allows students to engage academically through community service.


Lindenwood University’s Office of Service Learning and Responsible Citizenship exists to develop opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to participate in critically engaged community learning through reciprocal and equitable partnerships with campus, local, and global community partners. These experiential learning efforts strive to create an intentional learning environment that leverages and develops student skills and enriches community agency assets.


Lindenwood University is a hub for producing equitable change to create a just society.
