Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that takes students beyond the classroom and extends their learning into the community in a meaningful and constructive way. Service learning and community service is a core value in the mission of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College because it teaches our students civic responsibility and how to strengthen communities. Students apply what they learn in a classroom in real world situations while also helping the community.
Annual service projects include the VITA Program, Operation Wabashiki and Alternative Spring Break. To submit community service opportunities or ideas for new service projects, please contact Jamie McCracken at (812) 535-5360.
