Abstract

Dominican’s Service-Learning Designated Courses require that students work with their community partner for approximately 20-25 hours during the semester. The service hours must occur weekly and continuously throughout the semester, and the time spent constructively and productively towards the needs and goals of the community.

Ideally, a community partner has existing programs and infrastructure that can provide our SL students with opportunities to gain consistent (weekly) and extensive (semester-long) experiences participating and interacting with community members. In turn, SL faculty intentionally guide their students to reflect on and analyze their weekly community experiences to make connections with course content.
