Through mutually beneficial partnerships between the University and the greater Sarasota-Manatee community, we work to advance experiential learning at USFSM and equip students to become engaged citizens.

What is service-learning?

Service-learning is a reflective and experiential pedagogy that engages faculty, students and the community in a mutually beneficial way. Through reciprocal learning and exposure, these collaborations address community-identified needs, connect academic learning to civic responsibility, enhance community well-being and enrich the scholarship of the institution.
