Service-Learning Offers Variety of Benefits for Both Students and Community

Truman’s new Service-Learning Advantage is a one-of-a-kind program that promotes service through hands-on experience that will bolster a liberal arts education.

The program gives students the opportunity to meet the needs of the community while enhancing their co-curricular record, which appears on their academic transcripts alongside their courses. Groups of students, student organizations or individuals may design and lead their own projects that relate to lessons taught in the classroom or their organization’s structure.

 “Service-learning projects show grad schools and employers that you are a well-rounded, integrated person,” Mandy Love, Service-Learning Advantage coordinator, said. “It’s also a chance to give back to a community that has given us so much.”
