Students can combine community service with classroom learning in a number of Kirkwood courses. A faculty member may assign community service work as a course requirement. The individual faculty member and the coordinator of Student Learning jointly coordinate the Service Learning project with an appropriate outside service agency. Students engage in service to address genuine community needs. The service is directly related to their academic course work. Students will also engage in structured reflections, which may take many different forms: journals, portfolios, interviews, oral, and/or written reports.
