Campus Compact has been a leader in the service-learning movement since its inception. Service-learning incorporates community work into the curriculum, giving students real-world learning experiences that enhance their academic learning while providing a tangible benefit for the community. Campus Compact’s service-learning resources help students, faculty members, service-learning staff, and others create strong programs across academic disciplines.
My own service-learning experience helped me to change my undergraduate major to social work. As a student worker with the program, I gained so many skills that helped me to be successful as a social worker and change agent after graduation. Now I help student workers develop these same skills and find the same passion for creating positive change that I have felt.
