Students who serve:

  • rethink how they learn and why they value their education
  • become involved in their communities
  • become active rather than passive learners
  • help identify and solve problems in their communities
  • build closer connections between their campus and their communities
  • learn about our increasingly varied and changing world
  • understand people and cultures that are unique
  • develop resourcefulness, a stronger inner self, and a clearer sense of personal identity.
