Support the Service-Learning Initiative Development Fund
Support for Learning through Service
Service-Learning is a form of experiential education characterized by student participation in an organized service activity that:
is connected to specific learning outcomes
meets identified community needs
provides structured time for student reflection and connection of the service experience to learning
The Service-Learning Initiative supports development, implementation, and evaluation of sustainable service-learning courses and encourages community-based scholarship across the curricula of The Ohio State University to enhance student learning, develop student civic engagement, and foster ongoing collaboration with local and global communities.
In order to help service-learning scholars make
connections and learn about new projects, we will seek to periodically highlight a new
service-learning course on our website. Courses will be shared both here
and in the “Spotlight” section of our SLSR updates. If you are
interested in having your course highlighted, please let Harmony know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Out featured in the Newark Advocate Inside Out (SOCIOL 2211) was the
subject of an article for the Newark Advocate. Inside-Out courses at Ohio State
Newark bring college students and incarcerated individuals together in a
classroom setting to develop a partnership between institutions of higher
learning and prison systems nationally. The article focuses on the course’s
closing ceremony and features quotes from students as well as the experiences
of inmates, and discusses the transformative effects of the course for all who
participate. You can view the article here: http://www.newarkadvocate.com/article/20121202/NEWS01/312020006/InsideOut-course-exposes-inmates-higher-education
