About

Mission

The mission of Service-Learning at Northeastern University is to integrate classroom and community goals through transformative service partnerships that enrich the academic experience, inspire lifelong community engagement, and strengthen our local and global communities.

What is service-learning?

Service-Learning (S-L) is a form of experiential learning involving partnerships between faculty-led academic courses and community-based organizations.  Through these partnerships students engage in hands-on service roles and projects by which they learn about and apply course concepts while intentionally addressing the needs/interests identified by our community partners.
