"...Involve me and I learn..."   - Benjamin Franklin

Service-Learning is a form of experiential education in which students engage in activities that address human and community needs together with structured opportunities intentionally designed to promote student learning and development.

The Office of Service-Learning assists in multiple disciplines in incorporating service within the student experience.  See this article regarding service in the Quillen College of Medicine.

Reflection and Reciprocity are key concepts of service-learning.
