What is Service Learning?

Volunteerism and concern for the community have always been strong foundations of a Merrimack College education. Our service learning program enables students to forge direct connections between their coursework, their interest in community service, and their growth as responsible citizens.

Through service learning, you will enhance your academic work—and you will learn more about yourself and the role you will play in the communities where you live, now and in the future.

Everyone Benefits From Service Learning

  • Community organizations gain volunteers;
  • Faculty members freshen their class discussions through their students’ real-life experiences;
  • Students see the world in a whole new way.

Example of Service Learning:

A student in an operations management course and a student in a social justice course might both opt to tutor kids at the same boys and girls club.  The management student might return to class and discuss the efficiency of the boys and girls program, while the social justice student reflects on public policy issues instead.

In every case, our faculty help guide you as you integrate your experience with the curriculum.

“This experience has taught me self confidence and has given me a sense of fulfillment, knowing that I was able to make a difference.” - Andrea Barbati, '09
