The American Association of Community Colleges definition of Service Learning:
“Service learning combines community service with academic instruction, focusing on critical reflective thinking and personal and civic responsibility. Service Learning programs involve students in activities that address community-identified needs, while developing their academic skills and commitment to their community.”
