Service Learning


One of the ways CSM manifests its mission for academic excellence and student development is through curricular service learning. CSM faculty in all divisions offer service-learning courses that help students both achieve their learning goals and contribute to the greater Omaha community.

Curricular service learning is a pedagogy that integrates community service into academic courses to meet specific learning goals for students. Faculty, in partnership with representatives of community organizations, design service- learning projects based on two main objectives: advancing the students' understanding of specific course content and related civic learning objectives; and responding to community-identified needs and assets. Strong reflective and analytical components are built into the course to help students consider relationships between their service, the course's curriculum, and its impact on their values, vocations, and professional goals.
